It will happen on Sunday September 23 at noon (check-in from 11:15 AM to 11:45 AM), at Usdan Center's specially built Maurice B. Hexter Chess Center. The tournament is US Chess Federation-rated, and will be directed by Usdan Chess Instructors Brian Karen (a USCF and FIDE Expert) and Joel Salman (a USCF and FIDE Master).
Usdan is at 185 Colonial Springs Road in Wheatley Heights (Huntington), on a 200-acre woodland campus.
