Club Update Sept. 2023

September 27, 2023 11:41 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Our most recent tournament has had a name change! Originally called "Harvest Moon," we've decided to rename it the "2023 Ted Winick Memorial."

As many club members will know, Ted founded the club in 2010. ACC is one of the most successful clubs in Toronto, hosting many major tournaments with great success, and welcoming a number of big names in chess, including Wesley So, Nigel Short, Aryan Chopra and Hikaru Nakamura.

Ted's impact on the Canadian chess scene can hardly be overstated, having also founded National Chess Camp and Chess Institute of Canada. Ted passed away, far too young, in 2019.

As Ted's birthday is in late September, ACC will name any of our regular tournaments that run at that time after him.


ACC now uses the program Swiss Manager for pairing. Updates and results from our tournaments are now on


We're pleased to announce that in our regular tournaments our Crown section (1800+, with the option of playing up for those 1700+) is now FIDE-rated, as well as CFC-rated.


We are working on a Master section for our tournaments. The hard floor for this section will be 2200, with no playups. Any interested participants should email the club at


The 2023 Toronto Women's Closed is currently on hold, but we hope to re-open registration soon!


Our next big event is the 2023 Hallowe'en Rapid! Please register for this today!
