This tournament has three sections based on age and skill. Players will only play opponents in their section.

  • Players should arrive no later than 8:40am, or risk missing the first round
  • Games begin at 9am
  • There are four rounds (games) of non-elimination chess

A team is comprised of students attending the same school in the same building. A minimum of 2 players from the same school are required to make a team, but there is no maximum. Top 3 scores from each team will be added together to determine team standings. 

After 9am, rounds will begin ASAP, but players will have breaks between rounds. We strongly encourage parents/guardians to remain on-site, as Diplomat Chess will not be supervising players in the cafeteria between games. Snacks and lunch (peanut and nut-free) are allowed in the cafeteria. Water only in the playing hall.
