The Toronto Open Chess Championship is Greater Toronto’s marquee Open event of the year, sanctioned by the Greater Toronto Chess League.

The six-round chess tournament takes place over Labour Day weekend, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, with two rounds each day at 10:00am and 4:00pm. Games are played at 90 minutes per side, with a 30-second increment each move. Sets, boards, and clocks are provided.

Players will be sorted by rating into four sections: Crown, U2200, U1800, and U1400. Players within 100 points of the rating cut-off may elect to play in the next higher section.

Standings and pairings will be posted to the Chess Results server.

This is a CFC-rated tournament and CFC membership is required. Top two sections are also FIDE-rated. (CFC membership may be purchased on site at the tournament if necessary.)

Please note: Registrations after Thursday August 31 will not be paired for Round 1.

Getting Here

Parking in downtown Toronto is not easy, and the site does not have a parking lot. There is limited parking available on side streets, or paid parking in city Green P parking lots nearby.

If it’s an option for you, we strongly suggest travelling by public transit. The site is convenient to reach by TTC, as we’re just a short walk from Bathurst subway station.

A Little History

The Labour Day Open chess tournament in Toronto has been the one not-to-miss event of the year for quite some time. Many will remember Bryan Lamb’s tournaments at the Macedonian Chess Club of St. Clement of Ohrid. Here are Bryan Lamb and Randy Moysoski from 2013.

This year, Annex Chess Club is starting a new chapter in this tradition. We’re very pleased to announce the 2017 Toronto Open on Labour Day weekend, September 2-4. This also revives the Toronto Open, which has not run since 2014, and before that not since the PWC Toronto Open of 2009.
