BHS CHESS TOURNAMENTThe BHS Chess Tournament is a relaxed chess tournament for beginners or intermediate chess players. Admission is free, and the games will be played over the Holiday Break starting Monday, December 21. Only one game will be played per day per person, and so the pace is chill and anyone can compete. To compete you will need a “chess.com” account, which you can learn how to make in our FAQ. To register for the competition, go to the Sign Up page.
