Blitz event (online), Thursday June 18, 7:00 pm

We will have a 1-night Blitz event, online at chess.com.  Time control is 5 minutes per game, plus 3-second increment with each move (5+3).

There will be two sections, Open and Reserve.  You may enter either section, but players rated below 1600 (USCF, or chess.com) might prefer the Reserve Section.

The event will start at 7:00 pm sharp Thursday night.  Please show up a few minutes early (to "join" the tournament).   Each round will start after the prior round finishes.
