January Jamboree Chess Tournaments

January 17 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

$10

January Jamboree – tournaments on Sunday afternoons

The January Jamboree  tournaments are a new innovation by the SA Chess Association to see if chess will be popular on Sunday afternoons at the Chess Centre – and it certainly appears to be!

The first Sunday, 10th January, attracted 38 players on a super-hot day so it is very promising.

There are two more Sundays, today and next week .. but probably many more .. 

Sundays 17 and 24 January 2021 from 1.30pm to 4.00pm

Chess Centre, Ranelagh St Adelaide
$10 per player per Sunday
4 or 5 rounds (15 mins + 2 secs)
Small cash prizes

FOUR TOURNAMENTS WILL BE RUN CONCURRENTLY EACH SUNDAY, but this may change slightly depending on the numbers – the first afternoon saw the Open and Returnees combined and the Beginners and Juniors combined – it all worked out great!

  • OPEN
  • JUNIOR (under 18)
  • BEGINNERS
  • RETURNEES: someone taught you the moves years ago, maybe you played at school, but you can’t remember the last time you touched a piece. This should be the interesting one!

To enter, simply turn up at the Chess Centre around 1pm or text Alan Goldsmith on 0401 672 481 or email agoldsmith@internode.on.net
