Queen’s Gambit Thematic 2021

October 24, 2021

The Queen’s Gambit

For those that are unaware The Queen’s Gambit was a 2020 Netflix show that catapulted chess interest around the world! To celebrate the show’s one year anniversary we will be hosting a thematic tournament of the Queen’s Gambit position!

How does this work? Well, for this event the starting position will be 1. d4, d5 2. c4 … and black to play! That’s right, for this tournament black will play the first move with the board starting in the Queen’s Gambit line!

This should make for some interesting games as everyone will have had the opportunity to study the opening and some counters! Due to the nature of the tournament, this will be an unrated event.

When: 1.30pm, Sunday the 24th of October 2021
Venue: The Chess Centre of South Australia,
10 Ranelagh Street, Adelaide.
Entry Fee: $15 adult, $10 concession or junior
Format: 5 Rounds, Swiss System

Prizes: To be determined!
