2018 Shoma Kutasov Memorial Begins Feb 26!

The TOCC’s next tournament, the 2018 Shoma Kutasov Memorial, begins Mon, Feb 26!

As usual, this event will be five rounds and divided into three sections: Open, Under 1600 and Under 1000. However, one thing that is a bit unusual about this event is that we will be offering book prizes in addition to our regular specially engraved trophies! One of the five weeks we will also be doing a random book drawing before the round begins — so what can I say… get there early! ūüėČ

Registration is still open for this event! If you would like to jump in with half-point byes for the first round or two, simply email us at ThousandOaksChess@att.net

With this annual event we honor Shoma Kutasov, a long-time player who patronized the club nearly every week from its inception until his passing on Mar 13, 2015. Encouraging and amiable to every opponent he faced, his wry sense of humor and relaxed approach to the game of chess will continue to be missed.
