Register for Play Up Challenge

Saturday, June 15, 2024

Registration: Must register in advance online

Rounds: 9:30am, 12:30pm, 3:00pm, and 5:30pm


Description: Want to play strong opponents? Then this event is for you! We have assembled a gang of strong players. Chess gladiators, all rated at least 2000, and some much higher. They're not playing each other, they're playing the challengers. They're playing YOU! Can you score a point? Test your might! Participation is limited to club members. The price for non-members in the registration menu below includes a one-year adult membership for the club. If you'd like a different membership tier, please head to [our Membership page]( Participation is also currently limited to the first 10 players to sign up, but may expand depending on how many Gladiators we can recruit. The fine print: Challengers will play gladiators at least 3 out of 4 rounds. If challengers play each other, there will be no more than a 100 rating point difference or a difference of 2 places on the wallchart. Pairings will be calculated and published in advance and include randomness as opposed to standard swiss pairings. This event is USCF rated, and a current US Chess membership is required. Please visit [the US Chess Membership site]( to join or renew. Our confirmed gladiators include players rated: 1 x 2500+ 2 x 2300+ 2 x 2200+ 1 x 2100+ 1 x 2000+
