Click To Enlarge
Dean of Chess will be organizing teams for the largest team event in the world- The World Amateur Team Championship which is held every Presidents’ day weekend. 
This year the event will take place at the Parsippany Hilton 1 Hilton Ct., Parsippany,N.J. 07054 from February 17-19 2018.
What you should know:
ANYONE CAN PLAY REGARDLESS OF USCF RATING.  The event is designed so that Grandmasters can be on teams with amateurs as long as the 4-player team average is below 2200.  Even former World Champions like Anatoly Karpov have participated in the past!  Players play as a team, in rating order from board 1-4.  There are many awards for top scholastic teams, and top team under a certain rating every 100 points (example top under 1200, under 1300, etc).  There are also individual prizes such as top board prize and biggest upset.
Players must be able to commit to playing all 6 rounds over the 3 day weekend.  These games are longer than usual. 
Fee: $50 per person.  We submit and organize the teams based on several factors and will provide t-shirts and many other goodies for our teams.  We also will have a group photo with all of our team members.  We will also be giving a year membership extension to our academy to any player who wins a prize, be it team or individual.
 
This is one of the most fun events of the year, and Dean Ippolito will be playing on a team for the 32nd year in a row this year!   Please sign up if you are interested in joining us!
