Casual Chess: Every Wednesday from 7pm-10pm

Stop by for casual chess and a bit of socializing. A volunteer is always available to answer any questions you have about the club and our activities. This is a great way to get introduced to the club.

1st Annual Rose City Sectionals: May 2-3

A new event similar to a Class Championship with 200 point sections (Open, U1900, U1700, U1500, U1300). A four round Swiss played at G/120;d10. Great way to compete for good cash prizes in a section with similarly rated players. You save $5 on the entry fee if we receive your registration by April 30.

May Tuesday Quads Start May 5

Quad 45: May 16

Monthly tournament that usually takes place on the third Saturday of each month. Great way for new adult players and up and coming scholastic players to get introduced to the club and open (“adult”) tournaments. Also a great way for experienced players to battle against similarly rated opponents. Note-the tournament is now using 10 second delay.

Saturday Blitz: May 16

Follows the “Quad 45” tournament each month. Is USCF Blitz rated, has multiple sections, and a G/3;d2 time control.

Game in 60: May 30

Monthly tournament that usually takes place on the last Saturday of each month. NEW POLICY-Starting with the May 2015 Game in 60, whenever 30 or more players register, the field will be split into two sections. The division will be at the mid-point of the registered players with the upper section starting with an even number of players if there is an odd number of players overall. Players in the lower section may not play up in the upper section. Registration will now close promptly at 9:45am to give time to possibly set up two sections and still start at 10:00am. In the event the field is split the prize fund will be as follows: Upper Section (based on 15) 1st $75, 2nd $50, 3rd $25; Lower Section (based on 15) 1st $65, 2nd $35, U1400/unrated $50.

June Tuesday Quads Start June 2

Newport June Open: June 13-14

Sponsored by H.G. Pitre, Bill Barrese, and the Central Coast Chess Club of Newport, OR. We encourage players from the greater Portland area and elsewhere to play in this tournament. A four round Swiss played with the increasingly popular time control of G/90+30 (learn how to set many popular digital clocks for this time control here). Qualifier for the new OCF Invitational Tournament and OSCF State Championship. No on-site registration is planned so make sure you pre-register.
