  • Quick Play Open Tournament 2:45 Oct 7

    Sunday, October 7, 2012

    These are USCF Quick-rated, Swiss System tournaments, with time controls and rounds G/12;d3, or G/15; d4, or G/20; d5, depending on the number of participants. Registration is on site - no pre-registration. Entry fees are low as are prizes. The idea is to get alot of fun games, try out some new opening ideas and finish all games in a short afternoon approximately 3:00 to 6:00 or 6:30 PM. Entry fees are $10 for Current Club Members, $15 for non-Members. We have reduced club dues, especially for sustaining (former) members.

  • Bughouse Rules

    Bughouse is an outrageously fun team game in which one partner plays White and the other plays Black. As a player captures an opponent's piece, that captured piece is passed to the partner. The partner can either make a regular chess move, or place any one of the pieces passed by the partner anywhere on the board! (well, almost anwhere - there are certain rules to follow that we go over in class). To add to the excitement, Bughouse is played with clocks at a quick pace (5 minutes) and players are allowed to TALK!!
