ANCC to sponsor 4-round Fall Classic Oct. 19 in Lisle

The Aurora Naperville Chess Club is proud to announce its sponsorship of the 2013 Northern Illinois Fall Classic. This four-round event will be held the third Saturday of October filling the void left by the rescheduling of the Midwest Class.

The host site for the event will be the comfortable training facilities at Molex Corporation in Lisle, just south of the intersection of Ogden Avenue at Indiana.

First round will get underway at 9:30am with the event concluding by 7pm. Contestants will battle for cash prizes under USCF Dual-Rated time controls, Game/60 plus a 5 second delay.

Sections are designed so that all participants are generally in competition for at least some prize -- as if a full day of interesting chess competition is not its own reward. Generally these sections include Open, Reserve - Under 1600 and Booster - Under 1200 but these may be consolidated based on registrations. In the Open, where three or more registrants would qualify, there is typically an Under 1800 prize, in the Reserve, there are plans for an Under 1400 prize and in the Booster there may be an Under 1000 prize.

USCF membership is required but this can be processed at the tournament site so that the club receives credit. Questions can be addressed by writing
