HRCC on-line play

Join the Hampton Roads Chess Club and play in HRCC on-line tournaments
at Chess.com

Justin Armstrong a HRCA member has set up a club for HRCC and HRSCC members on Chess.com and organizes tournaments there. He is organizing events between members for the HRCA while we are closed. I expect this may continue after the club reopens. The events can be between members or our club against other clubs on Chess.com. This is a wonderful opportunity to play against our members on-line or with them against other clubs in Chess.com.

Click Join and leave a note to let the organizer know who you are and which club you play in (HRCC or HRSCC) — e.g. this is first name last name, and I’m in Coach Dan’s class at HRSCC. Or this is first name last name and I play at HRCC. It’s not always obvious from your username. Have fun!

Tournaments – These Swiss events that have timed play like G/15;d0. they finish in one day, normally taking less than 5 hours.  You must request to play will receive invitations to play in the events.

Matches – These are events played between clubs.  They are turn based events. This means that you will have x days to move.  Typical turns are 3 day or 5 day. You will play two games against one player having both white and black.  The games start at the same time so you will play both games at the same time.
