Teaching chess since 1997

Spring, 2021 News

The novice/intermediate class is currently not meeting. 

A special summer intermediate class is forming — see details here.

Our next tournament is Friday, April 23, 2021.

  • The tournament is located at Piada Italian Street Food; 1930 Highway 6, Sugar Land
  • Time control is Game/30 with 5 second delay.
  • 3 rounds  (possibly four if time permits)
  • Cost is $10. Cash prizes based on number of entries.
  • To register, send a note to fbcc@fortbendchessclub.com with your USCF number and send your payment to the tournament organizer.  You can send the fee using QuickPay to yangwei0041@gmail.com or send the fee using Venmo to fort-bend-hess-club. Finally, payment and registration is accepted at the tournament no later than 6:15 PM and only if fewer than 20 players have already registered.
  • You must be a member of the USCF to play in this tournament. Renew your membership here: https://new.uschess.org/become-member
  • Registration limited to 20 entries.
  • Bring a tournament-regulation chessboard and a chess clock if you have one. If you are paired against a player and neither of you have a board, then the game will be called an unrated draw.

Sign up for the month-of-Sundays tournament in May.
Time control will be Game/90.   Fast time controls are good for learning to think fast. Slow time controls are good for finding more complex combinations and avoiding mistakes.
