What we're about

We are a group of people who believe that the game of chess can bridge the differences in culture and personality to create a better community. We want to see people come together to enjoy their time and challenge one another in an environment of respect and trust. The Atlanta Chess Club works to facilitate gatherings, teach students, coach teams and most importantly build friendships.

Online tournament at lichess.org (every Saturday)

Online event

It is unclear when we it will be safe to play live chess again. Join your friends from the Atlanta chess meetup for a virtual event, hosted on Lichess.org. It's free to sign-up and play on Lichess, which is one of the largest online chess sites. The event will be a 180 minute, arena-style tournament, with a 30+5 time control for each game (30 minutes to start + 5 second increment per turn). In arena-style play, Lichess matches you with a new opponent after each game, until the 180 minute clock runs out. See the following link for additional info on Lichess tournaments: https://lichess.org/tournament/help The tournament will open at 2:00 pm, 1 hour before it starts. To join, click the link that we post in the comments section. You can still join late, after the 3:00 pm start time, but you'll play fewer games and thus have fewer opportunities to accumulate tournament points.
