All Chandra Alexis Chess Club tournaments in 2022 are registered with the Northwest Chess Grand Prix Tour! The Tour rewards players who may not win an event, but rather those who compete on a regular basis.

Overall Leaders from Oregon, Washington and Idaho as of October 1, 2022: Ted Wang 81, George Lundy 76.5, Viktors Pupols 75.5!

In Idaho we have: Caleb Kircher 32.0 and Michael Cambareri 23.0.

We are offering weekly USCF and FIDE tournaments on Monday nights in 2022. Drop by All About Games on Overland, just east of Cole, and earn your fair share of FIDE, U.S. Chess Federation rating points and Northwest Chess Grand Prix points available each week!

The FIDE Open will take place in Boise, December 16-18, 2022. The Elite prize fund is $10,000, and unconditionally guaranteed. The Reserve is U2200 and is $5,725, based on 100 paid entries. Three class prizes beginning with U2200 down through U600. Unrated players must play in the Elite section and will be assigned a rating of 2199.

We have commitments from a few out-of-staters to participate including GM Bryan G. Smith who will be playing in the MexInsurance FIDE Open this December 16-18, 2022. On Monday, December 19th, GM Smith will take on all comers in a GM Simul at All About Games on Overland, just east of Cole.

Don’t forget, FIDE titled players GM –> WCM, play for free! The organizer will make up the prize fund for titled players, personally. We run our tourna-ments for the players, not the pocketbook … much to my darling wife’s disappointment.

Your humble Godfather in Chess
