     Come join the chess tournament that is coming on February 8th.  Whether you’ve played chess before and you’re a professional or you are just learning, chess is always a fun and relaxing game to play.  Food and drinks will hopefully be sold there so you won’t have to worry about going hungry in between matches.  It will be hosted at the Marriot hotel in the Rancho Cordova Courtyard.  If you are not from around here you are in luck.  Since the tournament is being hosted in the Marriot hotel, you have easy access to the tournament.

The tournament has two different versions of chess.  Swiss and/or Quads.  Swiss is basically the process of elimination.  If you win your match, you move up and play the winner of another match, until there are only two players left.The prizes for the tournament are unknown until you get there.  All players with a plus score and teams in each section get a prize.

There are three section you can apply to play for. You can play in all of them if you really wanted to.  There is under 500, 500-799, and 800-1400.  This is not the only tournament. You can find a list of more tournaments at http://bayareachess.com/events/14/signature/.  We hope to see you there and good luck!
