For those who don’t understand “TLA Speak*” :

The event will be held at Colley’s Chess Cafe.  (Use the About and General Information link to the right for a map.)   It is a 3 Round tournament (3 games per player in the tournament.) It will be swiss system a tournament, which is the most common type of chess tournament. Each player will have 20 minutes on their clock to play all their moves in each game, and each player will have a delay of 3 seconds on each move before the clock starts to count down.

It is a United States Chess Federation Rated tournament, and therefore USCF membership (an additional expense if you’re not already a USCF member) is expected to participate – we can set you up on site for this. There is only one section – all participants will compete against each other.  A homemade 1st Place Plaque will be presented to the overall winner on tiebreak. There is a $1.00 entry fee charged for the event – $1.00 total if you play all three rounds.

Arrive to register for the tournament between 7:00 PM and 7:20 PM. (It is highly recommended that you arrive as close to 7:00 as possible.) The first round – your first game – begins at 7:20, and each subsequent game will begin when all players have finished their games in each round. (Typically the event has ended between 9:30 and 10:00 P.M.)

If you have further questions you may call the Event’s Tournament Director, Dennis Bourgerie, at 309-454-3842.

No smoking is allowed inside the building, and computer programs are not allowed to be entered. The facility is wheelchair accessible. We have a Facebook site that you can also check out (use the “Our Facebook Site” button to the right!)

* – TLA = Tournament Life Announcement, a shorthand way to speak of a tournament announcement (typically placed in the Tournament Life section of Chess Life magazine or online at the USCF website.)  Everything that follows below the asterisk is available in condensed form above the asterisk.
