Tuesday, October 11th-- Blitz AND Chess960

Just as it was once thought that peanut butter and chocolate were great tastes bound to live in eternal separation, so too was it not so long ago that Blitz and Chess960 were fun events bound to occur in alternating weeks.

No longer. Starting this coming Tuesday, October 11th, we will be having Blitz and Chess960 side by side, every week. Events will each start at 7:00 P.M., with registration beginning at 6:15. Each event is $5 for members, $10 for non-members. You can play in both, but that would be really hard.

Time controls are G 5 for Blitz, G 15 for Chess960. Tournament formats are to be decided and based upon attendance.

NO USCF MEMBERSHIP IS REQUIRED, so bring your friends!

Do you know who else plays Chess960? Top US Chess player, Hikaru Nakamura and chess960 Champion:
