The Chandra Alexis Chess Club has been active in Boise, Idaho, since 2007.

Our tournament location is downstairs in the Scott Hayhurst DMD building

at 7337 W. Northview Street, Suite 4, Boise Idaho 83704. 

Suite 4 is Blue Pencil White Pawn.

The United States Chess Federation requires all affiliates who wish to advertise in Chess Life to contact their state Clearinghouse prior to submitting tournaments for publication.  The Chandra Alexis Chess Club makes every effort to avoid conflict with other affiliates in the state by contacting the United Staes Chess Federation’s Clearinghouse for Idaho and the Idaho Chess Association prior to submitting our tournaments.

All of our tournaments qualify for the Northwest Chess Grand Prix Tour!

Upcoming FIDE and United States Chess Federation rated tournaments

Players join the United States Chess Federation out of our need to find stronger competition and a desire to improve our game.  Were we happy to play the fellow next door for Mountain Dew and Firehouse Sub cheddar beef brisket sandwiches, we would have never joined the United States Chess Federation. We know how to give Boise players a real payday, without leaving home.

Numbers to the right indicate seats remaining for each event.

Since May 29, 2021, the Club has offered these 23 United States Chess Federation and FIDE-rated tournaments.
