Weekly Events

The Dallas Chess Club hosts several weekly events, including WBCA tournaments, chess lessons by Masters for players of all strengths, and Saturday Swisses.

The Dallas Chess Club considers all its weekly scheduled tournaments to be sections in a month long tournament. This is to save money on rating fees and postage. The reports may get send in sooner. The club's goal is to send reports to the USCF every two weeks. Every effort will be made to send in the reports in time to make each supplement.

In addition to these regular club events, the Dallas Chess Club regularly holds special events, including Scholastic Tournaments and two or three day slow time control weekend events. For information on special events go to the Calendar. Weekly events are covered below. Please check the home page for last minute changes to the schedule.
