WCC Monthly G/10 Chess Tournament

Tomorrow, March 28, 2017 @ 7:30 p.m. (Arrive by 7:00 p.m. please).

You are cordially invited to come out of hibernation, and join the Westport Chess Club at our monthly G/10 Chess Tournament!

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.

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).
