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

The event will be held at Colley’s Chess Cafe. It is a 3 Round tournament (3 games per player in the tournament.) Each week we will play one round (you are playing one game each week for three weeks.) It will be a Swiss System tournament, which is the most common type of chess tournament. It is paired in 1 vs. 2 format (top rated in score section plays next highest rated they haven’t met, 3rd rated vs. 4th rated, and so on.) Each player will have 60 minutes on their clock to play all your moves in each game, and each player will have a delay of 5 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. There is only one section – all participants will compete against each other. There will be no prizes for participation. There is a $1.00 entry fee charged for each round played – $3.00 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.) On each week the games will begin at 7:30 – if you are not present in subsequent weeks, it is assumed you are not playing that week. (Typically, each round ends between 9:30 and 10:00 P.M.)

If you have further questions you may call the Event’s Tournament Director, Darren Erickson, at 309-262-5553.

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 above!)
