Metro Chess Club METROPOLITAN CHESS CLUB
(Established since 1959)



Club Blitz Tournament

In the earlier years participants of the Club Blitz Tournament were divided into groups of about 8-10 players so that the groups were of even strength. The groups then played off with the leaders in each group advancing to the final. The final should have approximately 6-9 players. Participants also had 5 minutes each for their games.

In later years the Club Blitz Tournament has been held as a Swiss event with varying time controls from 5 mins to 3 mins + 2 sec. increments.

This event is currently held after the Robert (Bob) Pilgrim Open and Aggregate points are awarded for players performances in their respective rating groups.


2022 Club Blitz Tournament


For this year the Club Blitz was held as a Round Robin Tournament (11 rounds) using 3 minutes + 2 second increment time control.
