Summer Tournament Starts June 4th

The Kenilworth Chess Club's fun, friendly, yet highly competitive Summer Tournament starts on June 4th at 8:00 p.m.

Here are the rules :
  • The 2015 Summer Tournament will run from June 4th through August 27th.
  • The entry fee is $5.00.
  • The event is not rated.
  • The time control is G/60.
  • G/55+5 (delay) may be used if there is mutual agreement between paired players. Increment settings are not allowed.
  • You may play anyone who is entered. The first time you play an opponent, the lower rated or unrated player has White. In subsequent games against the same opponent you alternate colors. If both players are unrated or have identical ratings, they toss for initial color.
  • You may not play the same opponent more than four times in the tournament.
  • All games are to be played at the Kenilworth Chess Club during normal operating hours. No game may start before 8 p.m. or later than 9:45 p.m.
