On Saturday, July 9, Rochester Chess will be hosting a Novice Section of the 2022 Rochester Open at the Mayo Civic Center. You will play four games (10am, 11:10am, 12:50pm, 2pm).

They will provide chess sets, chess clocks, a basic intro to get you started, and help along the way. Cost for the Novice Section is $10 online (by July 2) or $20 onsite.

For players who already have (or want to get) a United States Chess Federation membership, the 2022 Rochester Open will feature five rounds on Saturday and Sunday (July 9-10) in four rated sections. Cost for rated sections is $100 onsite (with early registration discounts online).

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
