The 2014 Tournament is over.

Thank you to The Kasparov Chess Foundation! Without them we would not have been able to do this tournament.

Results are available on our Results page. Last update Saturday Jan 18th!

We hope you had a great time. Considering that this was our first time on the new playing site and the first time we tried a one-day event, I believe we didn't do too bad, but what do you think? Please feel free to send feedback, be it criticism, praise or both, to . We hope we can do it again next year, only better, so your feedback is very welcome!

We had the pleasure to invite you to the annual Greater New York Scholastic Team and Individual Chess Championships, played on the second Sunday in 2014.

We moved to a new site this year, the Brooklyn Marriott Hotel, about 5 minutes drive south of the Brooklyn Bridge.

The format was as usual four separate one-day 5-Round, Swiss-System tournaments. (Everyone played all 5 rounds, no one was eliminated). Each tournament was then split into Primary, Elementary, Junior High and High School sections.

All games was played with time controls of 25 minutes + 5-seconds delay per player (non-delay clocks 30 minutes per player), and was rated by the United States Chess Federation (USCF).
