  • President: Rosalinda Romo
  • Vice President: Joel Salinas

Founded in 1888, the San Antonio Chess Club is the oldest chess club in the state of Texas. They currently meet at the Lions Field Center on Broadway from 1730-2100 every Thursday (except holidays).

The club is currently exploring ways to expand chess activities in scholastic and amateur arenas across the city. If you’re interest in joining or would like more information, check out their official website for details.

A Plug for the Club!

Chess often gets portrayed in film and media as a solitary activity, but there is a huge social component to the game that is rarely seen by the world at large. While millions take to places like lichess.org and Chess.com to get their fix, there are still countless others who play over-the-board (OTB) chess in clubs, restaurants, bars, homes, and an endless list of other places around the world. I admit that media had shaped some of my ideas of chess players and clubs, but I was pleased to see most of those ideas shattered when I gathered up the nerve to visit my local club for the first time in 2016. They were very welcoming and shared just as much of a passion for the game as I did. I found that being around such great players who were committed to the game and its principles was inspiring; it made me want to get better although I felt like I was only getting worse.

Since then, I have been blessed to play with some amazing players in and around the San Antonio area including chances to play in simultaneous exhibition games against GM Boris Avrukh and IM Paz Medina.

With that in mind, there are many exciting ways for players in the South Texas area to get involved in local clubs as well as ways to find players who are willing to play and coach. NM Jesse Lozano is a local chess celebrity who is the reigning city champion. He runs the San Antonio Scholastic Chess website and regularly hosts tournaments at Trinity University and other places throughout the city. In addition, Rackspace hosts chess tournaments at its Headquarters (known as The Castle) just off of Interstate 35 near SAMMC. The next Rackspace event is scheduled for April 1st.

If you live in the area and are looking for a good place to play, check out the club’s official Facebook page. The group is regularly filled with lively discussions, brilliant chess, and information on the latest events in the city along with registration information. 

The San Antonio Chess Club’s official website is currently down for maintenance but will (hopefully) be available for access at www.sanantoniochess.com.

Jesse James is 3-time San Antonio Champion 

Chess players from around the San Antonio area converged on Methodist Hospital this past weekend to see who would earn the distinction of San Antonio City Chess Champion. Approximately 82 players registered for the 5-round event which saw participation from players in the 900 ELO to 2263 ELO range! NM Jesse James Lozano quickly emerged as the man to beat as he sought to defend his championship title and earn the distinction of being the 3-time city champion.

Entering into the 4th round of the event on Sunday Lozano led the tournament with a score of 3-0, although Alexander Wlezien, who commanded a 2206 ELO prior to the event remained neck-in-neck with him. The final standings had both Lozano and Wlezien earning no losses across all five rounds. In the end, Jesse James claimed his third title and walked away with an impressive 2267 ELO. Congratulations to Jesse on his win!

A small sample…

The annual city championship is a small sample of the larger San Antonio chess community that thrives throughout the year. The San Antonio Chess Club meets every Thursday night at the Lions Field Center on Broadway St for blitz and a subset of the club meets each Wednesday at Methodist Hospital for a monthly rapid tournament (G 90|5). Many of these events include highly skilled club players in the 1600+ ELO range, but Jesse Lozano offers opportunities for kids and lower rated players in scholastic play throughout the region on his website, www.sascholastic.com.

Chess, Chess Everywhere in San Antonio!

For chess players and fans across South Texas, San Antonio is the place to be this weekend and throughout the next few weeks. Aw, who am I kidding? San Antonio is the place to be, period. This weekend, Trinity University and the Jesse James Chess Academy is hosting a tournament at their main campus in downtown. You can read more about that tournament here on Campfire Chess or visit the official website to register. Yours truly is registered and will be playing in the rated section.

Rackspace, the cloud company that converted the abandoned Westgate Mall into their technological metropolis, is hosting its annual Rackspace Chess Scholastic Tournament on April 30 (tomorrow) beginning at 0730 CST. There is no entry fee and the tournament is open for K-1 through High School Seniors. Visit the Rackspace website to see more about the tournament. Note that all participants must have a parent with them.

sachesslogoAs if that was not enough, the 2016 San Antonio Chess Club Championship begins this coming Thursday, May 5 at 7pm. The tournament is played at the Lions Field Center, which is the same location that my church, Mission Vineyard Church, meets on Sunday mornings at 10am (hint hint). Entry is free, but is closed to members of the SA Chess Club. Club officers will be on hand at Lions Field before the tournament to start a new membership or renew an existing membership. First place is a championship trophy and free entry into the upcoming San Antonio City Championship. Time controls are G75+5, but are subject to change based on availability of the Lions Field Center for late night play. Visit the club on Facebook and RSVP if you would like to participate.

Finally, the San Antonio City Chess Championship is also fast approaching and will be held from July 30-31. Exact times, location, and other details are forthcoming. I will post more details on that tournament when I know they have been solidified. I am also examining the possibility of conducting some live commentary for that tournament. At the very least, I intend to offer a daily tournament report, photos, and possibly some interviews. More to come.

In the meantime, enjoy the amazing amount of chess on the horizon in the Alamo City!

Annual San Antonio Turkey Shoot

As the rest of us were still digesting the leftovers from our Thanksgiving feasts, the men and women of the San Antonio Chess Club were finishing each other off in the club’s annual Turkey Shoot tournament at the Hornbeak Building in downtown. The event consisted of two sections: an Open Section with a $300 first prize and a Reserve Section (Under 1800 ELO) with a $200 first prize. Taking the crown home from this year’s tournament was CM James Rohrbaugh, who is currently ranked 66th in the State of Texas. Congratulations to all of this year’s players and winners.
