Chess Heights Monthly is back!
It will take place every first Saturday of the month starting from July 4 at the indoor gymnasium of the University of Lagos’ Sports Center. It is set to be a 6 rounds, Swiss rapid of 25 minutes + 10 seconds from move one time control. The year calendar will come out on this site tomorrow.
In its hey days, 2010 – 2013, Chess Heights Monthly was acclaimed as the most consistent chess tournament in Africa. It sought to set standards in tournament organizing through, for example, copious media publicity before and after the event.
The event has enjoyed the participation of most top Nigerian players including IM Dapo Adu, IM Bunmi Olape and foreign participation including one from India’s Ambesh Triparthi.
This return of Chess heights Monthly aims to surpass past efforts by trying to increase prizes, even better playing condition, more publicity and even international recognition for winners.
