ETH Chess Championship

The ETH Chess championship is over :'( See this page for an overview of what happened at the event. We will be back next year!


Brace yourself, the ETH Chess Championship is coming!

The largest ETH tournament to date-with up to 80 expected participants-will ultimately crown the undisputed  ETH Chess King and ETH Chess Queen. The King and the Queen will secure automatic qualification for the Polychamps next year, representing ETH in the intense over-the-board match against EPFL. There will also be prizes for various categories (announced later) so that players of all levels can win something!

Our event is supported by who will offer free memberships to participants as follows: 3 months diamond membership for the first player on the final ranking, 1 month diamond for the second player, and 1 month platinum for the third player. Two additional 1-month gold memberships will be offered to participants drawn randomly.

The event will take place on Saturday, 20th of May from 14:00 to 19:00 at the Alumni Pavillon. You will have the chance to showcase your skills during 9 rounds with the usual 5+3 time format!
