Hi everyone,
 
Our November Tuesday tournament series concluded last night. Congrats again to Mark Ma for the win! With this win, Mark passes the 1900 rating hurdle; a pretty amazing accomplishment given his teenager status.  Thanks to all 12 of the players who played some or all of the tournament. The final results have been posted and can be seen on the USChess site.
 
We’re restarting with Round One of Four next Tuesday (11/29). As usual, the Time Controls will remain G75+15 and the fee is $52 in advance (save $2 with cash or check in advance). The at-the-door fee is $60. Half-point byes are available if you must miss a day.
 
We are duplicating the Tuesday night tournament on Fridays beginning December 2 @ 6:00pm. This is a separate tournament with the same Time Control and Fee. For Friday, we’ll also run a parallel section for a 1-day tournament. That tournament will be G25+5, four rounds, and have a fee of $15 in advance (Save $1 with cash or check).
 
If you’re rated over 1800, please head to our website to see a special tournament for elite players like yourself scheduled for Saturday December 3 at 10am. Tom Brownscombe will direct.
 
One of our most popular tournaments in the past has been our Under-1200 tournament. We’re re-running it on December 4 @ 1:30pm. If you join the Chess Federation between now and then, your cost is only $5.00. For others, it’s the typical $15 in advance. We’re also running a separate section that day for players over 1200. The time controls for both sections will be G30+5.
 
Some of our players have requested another Blitz Tournament. It’s scheduled for Sunday December 11 @ 1:30pm. Time controls will be G5+2.
 
Join us on this Friday at 5:30pm-9pm for Casual Chess. We’ll socialize over some chess and talk strategy. Everyone is welcome; even those with no experience and, as a Thank You to all our players, there is no charge for this event. There are many on this mail list who’ve never visited. Please consider Friday as a personal invitation to come by and introduce yourselves.
 
To register for any of our tournaments, please visit out website and click the appropriate registration form.
 
More Bridgeopolis Chess tournaments and activities coming soon.
 
Thanks again to all our players and please have a fun and safe Thanksgiving Holiday!
 
 
Thanks for helping us grow Bridgeopolis Chess!
Hope to see you soon!
