AUTUMNAL EQUINOX QUICK CHESS


Even if you dislike blitz chess, give this a try!

We used to hold these often, and back in the day, John Bartholomew would show up. (He was just a chesspunk back then, but even so, he would give IM Victor Adler a battle!) This format doesn’t require you keep a scoresheet and does not affect your regular rating. But there is enough time for the occasional deep think, and you can ambush the kiddies who think it’s just like blitz, and they can just out-move you.

Ten games, swiss pairings, quick rated, with probably two games against each opponent. Time control: game in ten minutes with a three second delay. Entry Fee: $15 (club members $5 off). Prize fund: 60% of entries, with at least one class prize. Registration: 1:30-1:50pm. Phone to reach the TD: 651.280.5473 or e-mail at danvoje@gmail.com with questions. Schedule: Round one at two, short break at halfway point. Should be done by six. Dan Voje is the TD.
