2017 AMFA Chess Season: Angeleno Club Open: January 21 and June 3, 2017.
In 2017 we continued what we started in 2016: On-site chess tournaments that are open to all, full of freebies, prizes, medals and trophies, coupled with a low entry fee system. Chess tournaments are an essential part of any serious chess player’s growth and fun and more relaxed events take the pressure off for students of all ages and levels. AMFA students and Angeleno Chess Club members had special perks available too that could be applied towards their clubs or private lessons. Both tournaments had 3 Main Sections and 3 Subsections based on players ratings and how many participants each Section held. Both events showcased dozen of players of all age groups and rating groups but the youth in the 600-1200 USCF rating group dominated. Some players even had time for a game review or a bughouse match. Stay tuned for the next event and we welcome everyone who would like to come check out or join our chess classes.Thank you all who participated.
