Chess tournament and a simultaneous chess exhibition this Sunday in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Bird River Studios in Williamsburg, Brooklyn will host another tournament this Sunday- June 22nd. Players will compete in 3 different categories- Open, Scholastic U-1000 and Beginner/Unrated , there are beautiful trophies to be won and experiences to gain. Kids love playing and winning trophies and we love to see their passion for chess, so we’re looking forward to the event. Also, the Open section gives a chance for the beginner adult players to join the tournament circuit (better late than never!) and earn their first rating points.

This time, we have a special attraction for all the players- after the event we will host a simultaneous chess exhibition- FIDE Master Andrey Krasnov (rated 2272 USCF) will challenge all of the participants (at no extra charge) who think that they can try and beat him:)! This is a great opportunity for all the players to face a very strong opponent.

Both the tournament and the simul are going to be a lot of fun- if you haven’t registered yet, you should! Please go here to sign up.

See you at the board!

Upcoming scholastic chess tournaments in New York City!

Dear Parents,

 
tournament participation is important to your young players, so they can practice the skills acquired at lessons. While I’m still arranging the dates for my own tournaments, I thought it would be useful to share the information about the upcoming events elsewhere in the city.
 
My friend Ian West, who is a coach at the PS 139 school in Ditmas Park, is organizing a free tournament on Sunday next week (4/27) . Please click here to register. There will be rated and unrated sections available, so all levels of players are welcome.
 
Chess Educators organization has tournaments coming up for you on Saturday next week (4/26) in Jackson Heights and on May 18th in Manhattan. Please click here for the details.
 
There is a tournament on Upper East Side at PS 6 on Sunday next week (4/27). Please click here for more information.
 
Chess in the Schools organization’s tournament calendar can be found here with tournaments scheduled for April and May.
 
Marshall Chess Club in Greenwich Village hosts tournaments every day- while most of them are for pretty advanced players, I would encourage you to check out their calendar – playing in an under-1600 section on Saturdays or Mondays should be a very good experience for ambitious scholastic players.
 
There is a wide variety of opportunities for kids to play in New York City- please take advantage of them and have fun!
 
Best Regards,
Simon Rudowski

Playing chess is fun for everybody. It’s even more fun when you play well and win. Below are some of the images of my students happily sporting their trophies and medals won at recent tournaments. The scholastic chess season is in full swing, there is a tournament almost every weekend at this time of the year. Stay tuned- I’m working on organizing new exciting events for kids and adults alike- coming soon!
