New York City Chess Calendar



LIVE OTB and Online tournaments are happening.


Chess in the Schools, The Right Move, ChessNYC, TriState, and Impact Coaching are doing in-person events as is The Marshall Chess Club. Others, too. To come.


Stay safe!




This is a calendar of New York City chess tournaments. I believe it is fairly complete based on what has been posted on various other sites. Always check the appropriate tournament organizer's link to verify the date, time, etc. Things change and people do not always tell me. (I try to verify all the program links but some of these will not be updated because people redo their web sites or calendars and don't tell me.)


There are a lot of tournaments. Some providers are now running something every week or even multiple times a week.  As always, I do not include all Marshall Club events. I have not included each week's events from Chess Max Academy, some weekday events from Chess NYC and events from NY Chess Kids at their own location. Check out their web sites at the links below for more. Yes, more!


Feel free to send comments or changes to me.
