September 7th – Labor Day King of the Hill Blitz Challenge

Calling all blitz enthusiasts! We are hosting our first ever King-of-the-Hill Blitz Tournament! How does this work?

We will have 2 pools of players with a table set out for each of them. We will divide them roughly by rating, ability, and experience. We will make groupings of 8-10 players if possible. Two players will randomly be selected to start their “pool” of play. We will play G/3+2 blitz. The winner stays at the table as King. A draw leads to a G/2 minute rematch where players reverse colors. Each pool will play from 7:00-8:00 to determine who is the “King” at each table. This will be tallied by arbiters.

After an hour at each pool the arbiters will determine who had the longest streak as “King” and the two “Kings” will play each other for the 1st and 2nd place prize.

1st Place Prize = $10 Bigby Gift Card
2nd Place Prize = $5 Bigby Gift Card

Cost: $2 for Members; $3 for Non-Members (PLEASE BRING CASH)

Who can play? Players 10 years old and up OR those with a USCF rating.
