Unfortunately, AOL email addresses can currently not be used for registering entries! We are working on lifting the block AOL has imposed on us, but for now we ask you to try using non-AOL email addresses if at all possible. If not possible, contact Webmaster for help.

If you plan to enter more than 5 players, please contact Webmaster for an alternative way of entering players that could save you some time and typing!

Play at the Brooklyn Marriott!

We are very happy to again be able to invite every interested scholastic K-12 chess player to come and experience our annual Chess Championships at the beautiful Brooklyn Marriott Hotel, on 333 Adams Street, about 5 minutes drive south of the Brooklyn Bridge, near Borough Hall.

Subway stops are just a short walk away; The A, C, F, N and R trains stop at Jay Street Metrotech while the 2, 3, 4, 5 trains stop at Borough Hall. A map and more info about transport and parking can be found on our Travel page.

If you wish to stay overnight at the hotel, make a reservation online here or call 877-303-0104 by 12/25 and ask for the $169 chess tournament rate (subject to availability).

Most things will be just like last year; The same sections, time controls and round times. Note that this year we will limit participation to 1500 players if we have to!

Our January 5th Friday Blitz Booster will as always be open for all, adults as well as scholastic players! Sign up is on-site between 6 and 6:45 pm.
