The Chess Players of Augusta are preparing to make their move Saturday at the CSRA Summer Open.
The three-round tournament takes place at the Columbia County Library in Evans, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m., said Adam Shaw, the president of the chess club.
“It’s a United States Chess Federation-affiliated event,” Shaw said. “It’s pretty much an all-day event.”
The rounds are scheduled for 9 a.m., noon and 2:45 p.m.
To participate, players must pay a $25 entry free. After paying, they become members of the United States Chess Federation, or USCF.
