Tournament Information

SEPTEMBER 24, 2023 (SUNDAY). 12 - 3:30 pm

Location: San Diego Chess Club (2225 6th Avenue, San Diego)

Schedule:  First round starts at 12:00 pm, please arrive 15 minutes earlier by 11:45. Tournament is expected to be done by 3:30 pm, lower rated sections might finish much earlier. Each mini section is awarded immediately after they finish their last round. In the past U400 type sections were done with their Quads tournament in 2 hours or even less.

Sections: Groups of about 4-10 players of similar rating will be formed later. About 5-6 such sections will be formed. This is a small scale scholastic event, so maximum number of players: 50.
