Alekhine Memorial Sunday

Two events in one: DeKalb Chess Club hosts the Alekhine Memorial Sunday, October 28 at the American Midwest Bank, 1985 Bethany Road, Sycamore.

This used to be called the American National Bank for those who attended one of our events held previously. We use the beautiful basement conference room.

The USCF-rated event kicks off at 10am with registration from 9:15 to 9:50am. It will feature three rounds of Game 60 play with a 5 second delay. Sections will be determined at TD discretion based upon registrations received. Prize money will be offered. This event is only open to USCF members but membership is available on site.

The unrated event is open to all and will begin at 12:45pm. Registration will be from 12:15 to 12:40pm. Four rounds, Game/30 with no delay. Trophies and medals will serve as prizes and again, sections to be determined at TD's discretion.

Alexander Alekhine would have been 120 on October 31st, so come on out and do him proud with a full day of chess fun this Sunday.
