Welcome to 2022 at Riverbank State Park! To sign up for “Amusing” at Riverbank send an email to mcmanusj363@gmail.com

COVID continues to be a serious factor in our health and safety plan. Please note the following:

  1. The number of players is limited to 80 total. Please limit those who accompany players due to space indoors.
  2. Only players may be in the tournament hall during play. Chairs will be provided in the indoor area outside the playing area, but safety spacing requires keeping this to a limited number. All must show proof of vax to enter building.
  3. Vax id card must be shown by all over the age of 5. This will be checked at the door. No vax= no entry. Community safety is at stake.
  4. Sections? On December 11 in Brooklyn only 1 signed up for the Awe section. There were 0 signed up for King. Therefore, there were only 3 sections. (See results section) Remeber, only the first 80 can be permitted to enter.
  5. Those in grade 3 and below who are below 300 may form the Pawn section based on entries. This must be indicated on the registration form.

Riverbank State Park and The Right Move are working jointly to keep everyone safe and healthy. Do your part. Get vaccinated. Wear your mask correctly and keep social distancing. Together looking back all will hopefully find this adventure very “Amusing”.

Results from Dec 11 Saturday “Tracking”

Please note that Dec 12 at Roberto Clemente State Park has been replaced because the gym repairs have not been completed.

Hello, and welcome to chess at Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, 357 Clermont Ave., Brooklyn. I hope you have read the Welcome Page and are familiar with how this tournament will progress. See our website for details www.chesstrm.org/NYC/

Not signed up yet? Send an email to mcmanusj363@gmail.com Include your name, uscf id and section. Not a member? No problem. On-site yearly membership (including renewal) costs $9. Hope to see you soon.

To see who is signed up already and to check that you information is correct look here.

The Right Move offers 5 rated USCF sections for you to choose:

  • Beginners and those rated under 500 should choose the kNight section (Under 500).
  • Those with some experience and rated over 500 usually choose the Rook section (Above 500).
  • More advanced players may choose to play in the Queen section (Above 900).
  • The higher rated players are usually placed into the King section (Above 1300).
  • The AWE section is for all adults currently members of the uscf.
  • All sections have 4 games for every player. Each round you will receive a new board number and a new opponent.
  • Games last approximately one hour. (G/30;d5) There is a game scheduled for 11:00, 12:00, 1:30 and 2:30. All games from the previous round must be completed before the next round can begin.
  • Beginners and those rated under 500 should choose the kNight section (Under 500).
  • Those with some experience and rated over 500 usually choose the Rook section (Above 500).
  • More advanced players may choose to play in the Queen section (Above 900).

  • Players who are not members of the uscf can purchase a one year membership for $9 at the check-in desk after you arrive (before 10:30) or during round 2. Players needing to renew their membership can do the same.
  • To start the round on time at 11:00 means that all players are already seated at their correct table by 11:00. Plan to check-in before 10:45 so you can be assured of playing in round 1.

    Hello, and welcome to chess at Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, 357 Clermont Ave., Brooklyn. I hope you have read the Welcome Page and are familiar with how this tournament will progress. See our website for details www.chesstrm.org/NYC/

    Sign me up: Send an email to mcmanusj363@gmail.com Include your name, uscf id and section. Not a member? No problem. On-site yearly membership (including renewal) costs $9. Hope to see you soon.

    To see who is signed up already and to check that you information is correct look here.

    The Right Move offers 5 rated USCF sections for you to choose:

    • Beginners and those rated under 500 should choose the kNight section (Under 500).
    • Those with some experience and rated over 500 usually choose the Rook section (Above 500).
    • More advanced players may choose to play in the Queen section (Above 900).
    • The higher rated players are usually placed into the King section (Above 1300).
    • The AWE section is for all adults currently members of the uscf.
    • All sections have 4 games for every player. Each round you will receive a new board number and a new opponent.
    • Games last approximately one hour. (G/30;d5) There is a game scheduled for 11:00, 12:00, 1:30 and 2:30. All games from the previous round must be completed before the next round can begin.
    • Beginners and those rated under 500 should choose the kNight section (Under 500).
    • Those with some experience and rated over 500 usually choose the Rook section (Above 500).
    • More advanced players may choose to play in the Queen section (Above 900).
    • The higher rated players are usually placed into the King section (Above 1300).
    • The AWE section is for all adults currently members of the uscf.
    • AWARDS: Trophies are awarded to the top 3 in each section (with a minimum of 12 players) If there are less than 12 players only two trophies will be awarded to that section. Any section with less than 6 players will be combined with another section.
    • Players who are not members of the uscf can purchase a one year membership for $9 at the check-in desk after you arrive (before 10:30) or during round 2. Players needing to renew their membership can do the same.
    • To start the round on time at 11:00 means that all players are already seated at their correct table by 11:00. Since many are still arriving they are causing an unnecessary delay in the start of the next rounds.
    • AWARDS: Trophies are awarded to the top 3 in each section (with a minimum of 12 players) If there are less than 12 players only two trophies will be awarded to that section. Any section with less than 6 players will be combined with another section.

    Welcome to The Right Move Chess

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s):

    The Right Move is a 501c3 not-for-profit that provides free scholastic chess tournaments on a monthly basis. Your donations pay for trophies, awards, rating fees, etc. Our goal was $3000.00 by October 2021 for this year. Your generous donations amounted to $1457. Thank you to all who were able to help keep having awards at the ready for our great champions.

    1. How do I find out if I’m registered? (How do I check-in?)
      1. Check the website www.chesstrm.org/NYC/ and find the section: “See who is signed in..,” When you arrive at the tournament look for the check-in desk to mark your name as present to let us know you are here ready to begin.
    2. What does “Section” mean? What sections are there?
      1. Chess uses a point rating system so that players can be more evenly matched with players of similar ability. Groupings based on ratings are called sections. Highly rated players win more often than lower rated players. Once assigned to a section you will only play those in your section. The sections here are Awe for adults and kids, King (Over 1300), Queen (Over 900), Rook (Over 500) and Knight (Under 500). In January 2022 the PAWN (Under 300 in Grade 3 or below) section will be brought back.
    3. What time are the rounds?
      1. Rounds begin at 11:00, 12:00, 1:30 and 2:30.  Check-in closes at 10:45 so round 1 can begin on time.
    4. How do I find out who I am playing? (What board am I on for round ___?)
      1. There will be a Pairing Sheet for each section (King, Queen, Rook, kNight).  This will tell you the board number and the name of your opponent for the current round.  Each round you will be assigned a new board number and opponent. This list will be posted outside the tournament hall about 5-10 minutes before the next round.
    5. Is the “Touch Piece” rule used here?
      1. Yes, if you touch a piece you must move that piece. Exception: “I adjust.”
    6. Do I have to write down my moves?
      1. USCF rules require all players to write down all their moves until there are five minutes left on either one of the clocks.  If you can you should make an effort to write down your moves unless you are in 1st grade or below.  If you don’t know how to record your moves you may simply put a check mark to indicate the move.
    7. Do I have to use a clock?  (What time should I set on the clock?)
      1. Generally, yes!  If a clock is available players should learn to compete using the rules with a clock.  Clocks should be set to G/30;d5, meaning 30 minutes per player with a 5-second delay. In order to finish four games in the time allowed a clock may be placed on games without a clock when the time for the next round approaches.  Scholastic players should get comfortable playing with a clock as soon as possible.
    8. What do I do if there is a problem during a game?
      1. Players having a question or having difficulty should stop the clock and raise your hand to get a tournament director (TD).  Resolve the problem before making your move.  
    9. How do I report the results of the game? 
      1. When the game is finished and both players agree on the result you both raise your hands to let the TD record the result.  When the TD arrives state the board number and “White won” or “Black won” or “Draw”.  The TD should call each player by name to make sure everything is correct.  Then reset the pieces and leave the tournament area until the next round begins.
    10. What are tie-break points?  What tie-break systems are used here?
      1. Frequently players finish the tournament with the same number of points, e.g., 4.0 or 3.5 or 3, etc. Tie-break points looks to the results table and uses the scores of opponents to determine who had the “better” order of finish.  Median, Solkoff and Cumulative are the tie-break systems used here.
    11. What are accelerated pairings?  When do we use accelerated pairings today?
      1. Accelerated pairings may be used in larger tournaments when there is a limited number or rounds. This helps the best players to rise to the top more quickly.
    12. What awards are there? (What time are awards?)
      1. There are trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place in each section.  (Sections must have a minimum of 6 players or sections will be combined. Sections with less than 12 players will award 2 trophies.) There are medals for those with 2.5 or more points who do not receive a trophy.   The awards will take place as the section finishes, generally about 3:30.

    13. How can I donate to The Right Move Chess Foundation?

    1. You can donate on-site, or you can send a check to: The Right Move Chess Foundation, 1214 Beverley Road, Brooklyn, NY 11218.
