Pre register: Link for events on home page www.ilchessvets.org. We HIGHLY recommend that you RSVP. We have a donated and VERY small space that can be revoked at the last minute and the most efficient way we have to contact interested players is through free registration. Cancel at any time. No account creation is necessary. Additionally, we offer weekly incentive items for those who do RSVP.

Entry Fee:

How we pair time control groups:
Swiss. Rounds ASAP.  Requested  byes are available for 1st round only except G/90 d5. We pair sections with the closest USCF ratings. We then utilize advanced pairings (closest pairings play) the 1st round, due to the limited amount of rounds played.  

Must be a current USCF member to play in rated sections. Bring Clocks, Sets and USCF membership card, if applicable. Pairings at the discretion of the TD.
