Casual Chess

The club is looking for additional people to host the casual chess, contact the club if you are interested. Note there will be no casual chess on December 27.

Sunday Quads: December 17

Starting in August the Quad 45 tournament moved from Saturday to Sunday and was renamed Sunday Quads. The main ideas behind moving the tournament to Sunday were so we would have a weekend tournament that accommodates players who can’t play on Saturday and players who would like to use Saturday to relax and prepare for a tournament after a long work or school week.

Game in 60: December 30

Starting in August the time control changed from G/60 with a five second delay to G/60 with a five second increment. Click here to see the clock rules for this tournament and how to set the popular digital clocks for this time control (including some important notes on some of the clocks). Also starting in August, the prize distribution when there are two sections changed so more players have a more realistic chance of winning a prize.

January Tuesday Quads start January 2

the on-site registration time has changed to 6:45-7pm and the round times have changed to 7pm each Tuesday so the games won’t go as late

2nd Annual Neil Dale Memorial Open: January 6-7

Neil volunteered countless hours to chess, including running hundreds of tournaments over many decades. We hope everyone can stop by to pay their respects and share some memories of Neil before the start of round 1. See more information about Neil here and here. Note the tournament is now using ten second delay.

Oregon State Championship & Invitational: February 10-11; 17-19

information coming soon

Game in 60: February 24


Sunday Quads: February 25

Starting in February the time control is changing from G/45;inc15 to G/50;inc15 so each player will get around sixty minutes total for most games. This makes the overall amount of time a player gets for a game very similar to the overall amount of time a player gets for a game at the Game in 60, which has proven very popular.
