      9th Annual Queen City Classic Chess Tournament

      Now in its eighth year, the Queen City Classic Chess Tournament has grown from 300 participants to over 750 participants from all over the Midwest. As one of the largest scholastic chess tournaments in the Midwest, the annual Queen City Classic Chess Tournament is designed to increase chess participation among all children by popularizing the game of chess. From the novice to the expert, students of all ages, backgrounds, and playing levels have the opportunity to sharpen their intellectual and reasoning skills, have fun, and benefit the Cincinnati community.

      Executed and presented by Cris Collinsworth Proscan Fund and sponsored by The Cincinnati Bengals, the Queen City Classic raises the intellectual bar for children in our great city as hundreds of youth from every neighborhood in the city spending two days together competing, learning, and having fun. It is not an exaggeration to say that on this weekend, there are no boundaries, providing a level playing field for all!

      One of the most unique aspects of the tournament is that it is hosted by world renowned chess Masters and Grandmasters. Previous Grandmasters include International Grandmasters Maurice Ashley, Gregory Kaidanov, Larry Christiansen, Susan Polgar, International Master Irina Krush, and Women's Grandmaster Jennifer Shahade.

      Through the generosity of the Cincinnati community, Cris Collinsworth Proscan Fund is able to reach beyond the tournament through providing chess education in schools and after school programs in some of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky's most impoverished neighborhoods. Through collaboration with non-profit community centers and schools in underprivileged areas, Cris Collinsworth Proscan Fund is able to financially support chess instruction for children.

      Cost: Payment required - Early Bird Registration: $35, After February 1st: $40 *Fee includes scorebook, lunch, t-shirt, and optional participation in the SIMUL on Friday, March 12th
