June Signups are Open for the Slow Chess League


Signups are now open for our 3 round June League Qualifier and Tournament Series to begin on Monday, June 6. These tournaments are for live chess games on the Chess.com live server at times negotiated by the players.


New players can sign up for our League Qualifier. You must be a member of the Dan Heisman Learning Center to be included. You don’t have to win a game to qualify. Just follow the rules and complete the tournament.


Qualified league players can choose from:

Traditional OTB Style

Open Swiss G/45+45

Open Swiss G/90+30

SCL Fair Play

Swiss 1-2 G/45+45

Swiss 1-2 G/90+30

Swiss 1-2 G/45+45 Double – 2 games per week

Swiss 1-2 G/90+30 Double – 2 games per week

Swiss 1-2 G/25+10 Double B2B – 2 games played back-to-back each week, just one time to negotiate


All games are played on the Chess.com live server.

Adding the 1-2 pairing option to swiss-style pairing yields closer rated pairings without sections.

Double sections feature a game each with White and Black against the same opponent for a round. Always get fair colors.

Check out our G/25+10 B2B section. 2 games to play each week, but just one time to negotiate. Rapid play lets you get a game with both white and black each week. That's fair play.


Signups will close at 22:00 League Time on Friday, June 3.

Go to slowchessleague.org and register to learn how to sign up and get in on the fun.


Sponsored by the Dan Heisman Learning Center and the Slow Chess League.
