2019 Knoxville City Championship -- The Championship will be a six-player round robin, held at the chess club on five consecutive Thursdays: October 24, 2019, to November 21, 2019. There are two ways to qualify to play in the 2019 Knoxville City Chess Championship:

  • The top finisher from each our five 2019 monthly Swiss tournaments -- held in January, March, May, July, and September -- will qualify to play in the City Championship.
  • The player who doesn't win one of our five monthly Swiss tournaments, but scores the most points cumulatively in them throughout 2019 -- will qualify to play in the City Championship. (Both wins and draws count toward the cumulative total.)
  • If anyone qualifies for the Championship but is unable to play in it, his replacement will come from our September monthly Swiss, which we call the Qualifier Tournament.
