This Saturday, October 23rd, it's the US Game/60 National Championship. Details on the ICA tournament calendar! The concept is simple: each player has sixty minutes (plus five seconds delay per move) for the entire game!
On Sunday, October 24th, it's the US Game/30 National Championship. Details on the ICA tournament calendar! As you might guess, each player has thirty minutes (plus five seconds delay per move) for the entire game! It's rumored that at least one of last year's National Co-Champions will be there to defend his title.
The site for both events is the congenial Holiday Inn on 5300 W. Touhy in Skokie.
Sets, boards, and clocks are being provided by the organizer, Sevan Muradian's North American Chess Association. Bring your lucky pen, show up, and play!
Please note the sizable discounts for preregistration and for playing in both events: for one event, the cost is $60 if you register by 6 p.m Friday; for both events, it's a very reasonable $100. But if you don't preregister, the onsite cost is $20 per event higher. (Also note that there are multiple sections based on rating: it's possible to play up one section for an additional fee.)
Free registration is avaiable to FIDE titled players!
