Join us for our next tournament, the May Swiss in the Park on SATURDAY, May 7!
Sun May 8 is Mother’s Day, plus some players have expressed Saturdays work better for them. So we’re giving it a go. Going forward however we’ll probably return to Sundays.
Four rounds in three sections: Open, Under 1600, and Under 1000.
The top 2 sections play G/45 d5, while the U1000 will play double-rounds. This means they play two games against each opponent for a total of eight games! (G/30 d5).
Slightly buffed $730 prize fund
