How to participate in the meetings (must be on computer, not mobile!):

While classes remain online for the forseeable future, club activities will remain online. The meetings vary in time control and format, although there will always be some form of blitz chess and either Swiss or arena format (usually Swiss).

These events are open to anyone at Caltech (students, faculty, staff, alumni, affiliates) or in the broader community with a Lichess account who is a member of the online club page.


FOR LICHESS SWISS TOURNAMENTS:

*These are weekly tournaments that start promptly at the scheduled time and are generally 7 rounds of 3 mins per person with 2 second increment. No elimination. You can join after the start time, but will receive half point byes for missed rounds.

To participate, join the club's Lichess page at https://lichess.org/team/caltech-chess-club (please state your Caltech affiliation when you submit your request) and enter the event up to a day before the start time. Be sure to be logged into Lichess to get paired.


Thank you to all club members for your continued support and participation!
