1st Annual Neil Dale Memorial Open: March 4-5

We have rescheduled the 1st Annual Neil Dale Memorial Open to March 4-5 and combined it with the Portland Spring Open. The tournament will have two sections and a time control of 40/90,SD/30;d5 like the Spring Open does but will have the higher prize fund that was planned for the original Neil Dale Memorial. 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. The tournament is limited to the first 50 players. Reserve a spot here. However, you must still arrive on-site by 9:30am Saturday to keep your spot and be paired for round 1. See the list of players who have reserved spots here.

March Tuesday Quads Start March 7

Quad 45: March 18

FINALLY, A PCC TOURNAMENT WITH INCREMENT!!! For far too long, there haven’t been ANY PCC tournaments with increment, despite a lot of players saying they prefer increment over delay since it helps mitigate time pressure a lot better. The time control at the Quad 45 has changed from a fifteen second delay to a fifteen second increment. Click here to see the clock rules specific for this tournament and the best setting to use to set the popular digital clocks for this time control. Due to expanding the time control, the round times are now scheduled at 10am, 12:30pm, and 3pm.
