On a beautiful Saturday in the U.S. Chess Capital, two teams from cities on the opposite spectrum of Interstate 270 ventured to the premier Saint Louis Chess Club. Ten players from Chicago took on ten players from Memphis in a double round robin USCF Blitz rated event. In a double robin, each player faces each member of the opposing team twice (one game with white, one with black.) The match consisted of a whopping 200 games. The winner of the match would amass 100.5 game points.
