Tournament Rules and Other Information
  • Unrated play for adults (21 years and older) who have no rating or a US Chess rating less than 1500.
  • A great chance to play other adults without worrying about getting clobbered by kids(!) and without worrying about rating.
  • Pizza, wine, and other refreshments served.
  • Swiss System pairings will be used. Generally this means players get paired with others with a same or similar score.

  • MACA provides tournament listing for all as a service to the chess community. For question, comments, or dispute regarding events that are not organized by MACA, please contact the tournament organizer directly.
  • Remember that each player is responsible for bringing and setting up their clock. Please refer to the Metrowest Chess Club Digital Clock Guide for instructions on how to set digital clocks.
  • MACA does not recommend but allows US Chess approved electronic scorekeeping devices. Please note that some national tournaments held by US Chess ban electronic scorekeeping, so be sure to know how to keep score without aid of electronics.
  • If online registration is enabled on this event, you can Join/Renew your USCF and MACA membership at the online registration page. If online registration is not available, you can join MACA (The Massachusetts Chess Association) at our Online Membership Form and USCF (United States Chess Federation) at USCF Membership Page.
