Ted Winick Memorial Swiss

Ted Winick is the founder of Annex Chess Club, as well as Chess Institute of Canada. In honour of what would have been Ted’s 75th birthday on Thursday, and the club’s 9th anniversary this October, we are dedicating this tournament to his memory.

The Ted Winick Memorial Swiss is a five-round ACC club tournament running from September 30 to November 4. (No round on Oct 14.) It’s a CFC-rated tournament, divided in three sections, Crown, U1800, and U1400. Time control is 90 min/side with a 30-s increment. New players can register on site each round by 7 pm. Email registration or bye requests before 6 pm.
