This fast, but hopefully never furious tournament, is always lots of fun. Lower rated players have a chance to pounce on a blunder or two, and maybe even pop an opening surprise on a more experienced player. The clock can be a great equalizer in short time controls. Or not! 📚 But why not book-up on some actual openings, and give it a shot! (Yes, middlegames and endgames are also important, but you sometimes have to get to those stages, by NOT ruining your game in the first few moves. I think Ray may have said that once or twice).
<PLEASE don't drink and drive>🚑 😱 Remember, in addition to cheap Flea Market Chess Night food specials, they also serve coffee, and other non-alcoholic beverages as well. Mention the chess club when you order for your discount!
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.

Every 2nd-Tuesday of the month, our club hosts a rated Game-29 round-robin chess tournament. You have to be a member of the USCF to participate. Each player will have 29 minutes to make their moves. You will play 3 rounds in a round-robin system, and there will be 4 players per section. Sections will be created according to your USCF quick rating (You will only play people near your current rating.) The entry fee is $5, and the winner of each section will win $15. Since this is G/29, only your quick rating will be affected.
IF you have a functional CHESS CLOCK, please bring it to the club for the tournament! 🕦🕦 If not, then no worries. There always seem to be enough to go around, thanks to those who consistently bring one to the club.
Registration begins at 6:30. Please try to arrive by 6:45 to help our Tournament Director get the pairings done in a timely manner
We hope to see YOU at the Westport Flea Market!!
