Anyone playing OTB lately?

Seems like everything has been moved online, at least in the PNW of the USA. Have any of you have gotten to play OTB in 2021 yet?

I'm hoping to run something early April and I know some local players going to an OTB tourney in a couple of weeks.

Nice, I didn't know that. I might make my way out there in October for the Armed Forces one.

Yes, there is a club in St. Petersburg Florida that is open and is running various types of Tournaments each month. All USCF rated.

I am playing in otb right now. 2 hour time control, my brain is fried. It goes to 11pm tonight and 5 pm tomorrow. I’ll be able to get home at 9 pm tomorrow.

I see nearly 20 OTB regular rated tournaments in California so far in 2021. The San Diego club is running their traditional Gambito on a monthly basis. The largest event so far appears to be a 44 player scholastic.

@Martin_Stahl, that is awesome. Which tournament are you planning to run? I'm affiliated with MetroWest CC near Boston; planning to reopen later this year.

We are running OTB club tournaments here in Reno, NV on Thursday and Sunday nights. We need to collect enough money to pay the rent and hopefully still provide some prize money.

I haven't heard of anything here in California.
