Chess Emporium : Tournaments

Note to tournament players: Starting March 9th our section requirements will change. All K-3 players will have to be rated under 500 and all K-6 players will have to be rater under 600 to play in the beginner sections. The New sections will be K-3u500 and K-6u600. To adjust for the added difficulty some students will now face qualifying for the Governor's Cup in the champ section, you will only be required to score only 1.5 points in a champ section to qualify. The qualifying requirements in the under section will stay at 2.5 points.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 602-482-4867 or email us at kids@chessemporium.com
