Welcome to the Tacoma Chess Club!
The Tacoma Chess Club is available on chess.com!!
Come and list yourself in the club! We will set up pairings for club ladder games online so you will be able to play challenges at the club or on chess.com from the comfort of your favorite comfy chair. Let’s get the club up and running a little better by adding games online!
Special incentives & prizes!
Submit your best chess.com or club games for review and WIN! We will award a GOLD club t-shirt in your size for the best game of year and in regular ink for the best game from now until end of August! (We haven’t gotten enough submission so bring your games!)
You can also submit a position where you demonstrate a nice win or solution. If you save a tough game, that qualifies!
|The club now has a “Ladder Challenge” board set up – see how high you can get! Once each time you come (Tuesday or Friday) you can challenge a player above you; play with or without a time control, as you both agree. The winner goes up, the loser goes down!|
