National Club Championships
The teams are out for the National Club Championships which starts this weekend.
Gonzaga are heavy favourites but Trinity continue where they left off last year as they stack their middle boards.
Team’s can be found on chess results
To kick things off there is a blitz tournament on Friday with a 1,000 prize fund with strong line up already registered GM Maze, IM Lopez and FM Daly. Should make for an interesting tournament.
Thats not all tho there is a U1600 tournament running along side the NCC. Details of both the blitz and U1600 tournament can be found below.
The tournaments are being hosted as part of the mind games festival and if anyone wants a break of chess for the weekend they can play a game of Go or Chinese Chess.
