NEW! - Check out October for a fun change to our monthly quad.
Format: Open to all ages! Casual games are encouraged before the quads are held, so players not interested in joining the quads are still welcome to come play. Players divided into quads (a 4 player round robin section of similar rating), and play 3 rounds, with one round on each of the first three Tuesdays in the month. Some sections may run as a Swiss or round robin with more than four players depending on circumstances.
Time Control: G/60;d5 (sixty minutes per player with a five second delay before each move).
Equipment: Some boards, and delay capable clocks will be provided. However, players are asked to please bring their own equipment to ensure enough for all those who wish to play.
Rated: US Chess dual rated (regular and quick). US Chess membership is required and can be purchased during registration. Learn more about US Chess membership here. This event abides by the 7th edition of the US Chess rulebook.
Schedule: Doors open at 6pm, with quads beginning at 7pm. Casual games held before 7pm are encouraged!
Entry Fee: $15 to join quads. Players who participate in casual games do not have to register. Register by selecting a month at left/above. Advance registration encouraged to allow for quicker quad assignments. On-site registration available 6:30 - 7:00pm on the first Tuesday of the month. Registered players who give advanced notice that they will not attend an upcoming quad may have their registration refunded. No-show registered players who are not assigned to a quad will receive a credit toward a future quad.
Attendance: Players are expected to show on Tuesdays, however, if a player is unable to attend on Tuesday, they are responsible for rescheduling their assigned match with their opponent during the same week. Players who do not show to a Tuesday match, and fail to reschedule with their opponent, will forfeit the match, and will receive a 6 month exclusion from future quads. Players who withdraw from a quad simply because they are having a bad tournament may be excluded from any future Eugene Chess Club event.
Prizes: The winner of each quad will receive $30.
