ChessPalace offers over 100 tournaments a year! Tournament and advance players can take advantage of weekly rated tournaments. Our regular events include Wednesday Knights-Monthly Open and Saturday tournaments. In addition to those USCF rated tournaments, amateur players can also join the Action and Amateur Open tournaments when available.

Our club tournaments are played in the style of the Swiss-system whereby there is a set number of rounds (at our club that could range from 3 to 5 rounds per tournament depending on the type of tournament and the length of each round). Participants do not play the same opponent more than once in a given tournament. The tournament winner is the chess player with the most points.

Some of our tournaments offer cash prizes and some awards are with trophies. Please check our tournament pages below for more information.
