July Jubilee 2021 (Online)

 Registration is closed for this event

The Saint Louis Chess Club is continuing our summer scholastic tournament series! In order to compete, students must register here, and sign up for a free account on Lichess.org prior to the tournament. July Jubilee 2021 will have three sections.

 

The three sections are as follows:

The K12 OPEN is for experienced tournament players with established USCF ratings;

The Rook Arena is for tournament players with less experience;

The Pawn Arena is for players new to tournament chess.

 

The K12 OPEN will be a standard Swiss-style tournament, with 6 rounds. The Rook and Pawn Arenas will be play-as-much-as-you-can style tournaments within the allotted time periods.

 

Each section of the tournament requires a password for entry.

Once registered, Scholastics will send you directions and a password to complete your entry on Lichess.org.
