With all of our chess and math classes having successfully transitioned to a virtual setting, we are proud to announce that we will now be running our weekly Super Saturday tournaments online as well.
This week’s tournament will be hosted on chess.com, which uses a combination of software and a human support team to ensure that USCF fair-play guidelines are followed throughout the tournament.
In a time of so many drastic changes, we are trying to change as little as possible about the tournament structure. As such, we will still be playing G/30;d5 for sections under 1000 and G/45;d5 for sections over 1000. We will be using USCF classical (over-the-board) ratings to create the sections.
We will try our best to make every section a quad (four players) so that every player plays everyone else in their section and nobody gets a bye.
The entry fee is $27, and first prize is $60 in each section. Registration closes at 12:30 pm on Saturday, and the tournament will start at exactly 1:30 pm.

We hope to see you there!
