G/10 Chess Tournament Reminder

Tuesday, November 29, 2016 @ 7:30 p.m. (Arrive by 7:00 p.m. please)

The Last Tuesday G/10 with the Westport Chess Club is always a great way to "relax" (ha, no time pressure!) and blow out some mental cobwebs!

BRING YOUR CHESS CLOCK! 🕦🕦

Every last Tuesday of the month, our club hosts a rated Game-10 chess tournament in the Swiss format. However, you do NOT have to be a member of the USCF to participate. You will play four ten-minute games. The entry fee is $5. A win will net you $2.50, and a draw will get you $1.25.

There are always other players available for non-tournament, casual play, so feel free to come to the club, even if you do not wish to play in the tournament. Registration begins at 6:45.

BRING YOUR CHESS CLOCK! 🕦🕦 ... if you have a functional chess clock, then please bring it along. If not, then no worries! There will still be enough clocks for the tournament.

<PLEASE don't drink and drive>🚑 😱

We hope to see YOU at the Flea!

Tonight at The Westport Flea Market

Some good fun for our third Tuesday of the month non-tournament night!

Come join the Westport Chess Club for a presentation on the French Defense, with Ray Birt. Starting at 7 p.m., this lecture will provide an introduction to the French, with basic ideas for Black and White, and perhaps some important tips and tricks that you just "can't not know" if you are going to play this opening. Or need to know if you are looking for guidance for responding to 1 ... e6 as White. One has to start somewhere, and there is a reason why the main lines are the main lines. (I get tired of hearing that ... but it is true!) A good review for everyone!

And YES, it is casual chess night, so there will be plenty of "no-risk-to-your-rating" <snort / giggle / who cares, anyway, right?> games happening.

The usual $2.00 for adults, $1.00 for students and no charge for first-timers to the club.

We hope to see YOU at the Flea!
