ACE Chess Presents: Unity Open - November 7, 2009

Last Updated: November 21st, 2009 by Daniel Rensch

American Chess Events LLC and Unity Chess Club have decided to form a partnership under a common goal: To provide more tournament opportunities with consistent “Master-Level” competition, in order to further stimulate the progress and improvement of Arizona’s youth chess players. In an effort to promote more Adult Participation in the Arizona Chess Scene, we have decided to create “Unity Opens”. With cash prizes in every section, we hope that every game will be extremely hard fought. For scholastic players wishing to protect their AIA and other Amateur statuses, prizes can be redeemed toward Unity chess products (including lessons, group sessions, and books). Seating is limited to 40 players for these events, so reserve your spot early. Enjoy!
