Nashville Chess Center May Swiss - No Draw Experiment Event - Memorial Day Weekend - Saturday, May 24th
Ever wonder what chess would be like if a system was put in place where draws were no longer a part of the game? The Nashville Chess Center is teaming up with Grandmaster and Chess Organizer Maurice Ashley to put on some no draw "experiments." Come be a part of this first-of-its-kind event!
If a game is drawn, then players will switch colors and play again without adjusting the time on the clock. This process is repeated until a clear winner is determined in each game.
