NOTE: for our Monthly Under-1250 tournaments, we have the option to run a separate section for 1250+ players. In the past, we’ve combined into one section when too few players over 1250 registered. To keep it appealing to new players, we will accept 1250+ players only if there are enough players to make a separate section. To be placed on the interest list for 1250+ players, please register for the date(s) and check the Over 1250 box. Do not pay until contacted by Marvin to confirm there will be a 1250+ section.

Registration for Bridgeopolis USCF-rated Tournaments. Any changes or unlikely cancellations will be posted here and sent via email. More tournaments may be posted shortly.

All tournaments require players to be current and paid members of USCF. NOTE: Some tournaments allow onsite registration for an additional fee if space is available. Entry after any tournament starts will be permitted only to make an even number of players and is at the sole discretion of the TD. Pre-paid entrants will always be admitted.

One of our players is selling hundreds of chess books from his extensive collection and has asked that I list it here. The URL is or email
