Event Overview

This year’s Arkansas state chess championship will use the same three-day/two-day format from last year, meaning that players are able to choose whether they want to play Friday, Saturday, and Sunday or just Saturday and Sunday. Entry fee is $60. US Chess membership and ACA dues are required. ACA dues are ($10/yr adults 21+, $5/yr youth). Entry fees can be paid through cash, check, or a card onsite. All players will be in the same section, while prizes will be determined based upon overall and rating performance. This is an open tournament, meaning that any player within the US Chess organization can play, but only AR players are eligible for the title or trophies. Some equipment will be provided, but strongly encouraged to bring your own. Tournament director will be Nicholas Jaeger. Contact information: Click here to show mail address or 870-688-6423.
