It’s that time of year again!
Club Championship starts February 24
It’s time for another edition of our annual Club Championship! (Check out the club championship tag for past editions!)
The format for the Club Championship is a little different than our regular Swisses: six rounds and just two sections, Championship and Reserve.
The Championship section sees the top players at our club vie for the title of 2020 Club Champion! Josh Guo is the defending champion. The minimum rating to enter the section is 1700.
The Reserve section sees players rated under 1800 compete for the title of 2020 Reserve Champion. Last year it was Matthew Furrow.
All are welcome!
All are welcome to join us for the event, but only full-year members are eligible to win the Club Champion and Reserve Champion titles. Winners’ names will be engraved on permanent trophies at the club.
Rounds are at 7:30 pm on six Monday evenings, starting February 24 and running to March 30. Registered players may request a bye by email before 6:00 pm. New players are asked to please register on site by 7:00 to make sure that you’re paired for the night’s round.
