Upcoming Tournament Flyers


Please note:  The Pittsburgh Chess Club reserves the right to require use of a carbonless duplicate scoresheet (to be furnished by the PCC) in any PCC tournament game, and to mandate submission of one copy of that scoresheet by each player to the PCC.  This authority is granted by US Chess Rule 15G.  This will usually be limited to the top 1-2 boards in the top section of a tournament during the last 1-2 rounds.
