April 9 - Southwest Chess Club ----> Online event at Chess.com " Slow Blitz " (Game/8 minutes, + 2-second increment)

We will continue to hold weekly Thursday night events online at chess.com.


This week we will try "slow blitz" (time control is 8 minutes plus 2-second INCREMENT).  This means that you get 2 seconds added on to your clock every time you make a move.

It is a 6-round tournament, starting promptly at 7:00 pm.  Be on time and click the link below to join the event.  It should run until around 9:30 pm.  (You can always "leave" the event if you need to; if you show up late, you can still join, getting a bye for any missed round)

Here is a direct link to the tournament:  https://www.chess.com/live#t=1183878
