  • DCC 2022 MLK Tournament

    The Colorado chess old guard is being replaced by fresh blood

    It is an honor for the Denver Chess Club to stage a yearly memorial chess tournament in tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. on his national holiday weekend. Reverend King put his life on the line - and ultimately gave his life - to make life better for people of African American descent.

  • DCC December 2021 Report

    "Brian was very gracious in the simul allowing unlimited passes and engaged the kids very well."

    We'll start out this report with a John Brezina summary of a Brian Wall simul that was held at Mr. Brezina's Parker Chess Club. The DCC December report follows below. Without doubt chess in the United States is growing in popularity, and John's efforts to promote chess at his chess club is aiding that growth here in Colorado.

  • DCC October 2021 Report

    Proving once again that no player can be taken for granted.

    Tuesday night attendance continues to average 60 or more tournament players each week. This month we had more players for the last round than we did for the first round. Which indicates players are playing each week regardless of their score or chance of winning prize money. This further indicates to me that the DCC is providing what chess players want. The sections are competitive and... Read more >>
