FREE USCF-Rated Chess Games

GKCC member DOUGLAS FORSYTHE wants to play chess with you. He wants to play USCF-Rated games in the Knoxville area, at any time control from G/30 to G/60 inclusive. He would like to play you a match of several games, in one session.

  • He would pay all Rating fees -- it would be free for you to play.
  • He would be happy to play at your house, his house, or some other mutually agreed-upon location (for example, a local bookstore).
  • He can play on almost any day and time that is convenient for you.

If you are interested, call Doug at 456-1579, during April 2017.

For the games to be Ratable:

  • You must be a current USCF member. for more details and full list
