The home of chess in Galway
Our next blitz tournament is on Thursday 23 May at our usual venue of upstairs in the Bridge Centre, St Mary’s Road (opposite St Mary’s School). Start time will be 7.45 p.m.; the tournament will end about 10.30. There will be seven rounds, and in each game you will have 5 minutes plus 5 seconds a move to make all your moves. We will provide sets and clocks, so all you need to do is bring yourself (and preferably some chess-playing friends as well). As this is out of season, there will be a charge of €5 to cover the cost of renting the room, with any money left over being returned in prize money. Yes: PRIZE MONEY!
