Annual team match between the most fanatical chess players in Oklahoma and Texas
Texas has the title, the trophy and bragging rights. Team Oklahoma does NOT want a repeat.
NOTE: Like last year, which worked well, players must register for a spot on the team in advance, and then the team captains will pair them with a similar-rated registrant on the opposing team to guarantee a well balanced team match.
HERE'S HOW THIS WORKS: To play in the Match Section, you must register with your Team Captain no later than Sunday, 21 April 2019. The Team Captains will review and approve the Team Rosters with the Chief TD.
On 22 April 2019, the Chief TD will send you an email telling your status: Match or Murray County Open. If you are listed in the Murray County Open you still have a chance of playing in the Match section, if there is a vacancy and you are qualified.
Your best chance for playing in the Match Section is to REGISTER with your Team Captain EARLY. Also make sure your US Chess Membership is current as of 30 April 2019.
This is not a guarantee you will be listed in the Match Section (we'll try our best). However, this system has been proven to be the best way to guarantee Match Players will have an opponent from the other State.
As of the date this Webpage Update, 30 January 2019, 2 Okies and 8 Texans are registered for the Match Section. Last year the Match Section had 26 boards so there is room for you if you register NOW. DON'T WAIT and risk missing the fun.
If you registered but haven't heard anything send an email to the Chief TD. firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, register early so we have more time to find a suitable opponent for you.
