Everyone else in the Tampa Bay Area has shut down their tournaments for the summer (or longer) due to a lack of support. No more St. Pete, HillEl, or even Coach Taylor (except for his June 5 Mary Bryant).

We are still committed to providing our 4th Saturday of the month tournaments and Tuesday night chess club/classes at 5035 E. Busch Blvd. – if we get enough participants. Club is only $5 for adults per visit, $50 per month for kids with excellent instruction!We have responded to your requests by lengthening the time control, altering the prize structure, and electronic submission of rating reports. Our players have enjoyed the ability for father and son to participate in the same event. These tournaments have resulted in rating bonanzas for our younger players!
