 About Cincinnati Scholastic Chess

Since 2007 Cincinnati Scholastic Chess (CSC) has been organizing chess tournaments in the greater Cincinnati area for scholastic players (grades pre-K through 12). The annual CSC Series offers one tournament per month from October through March.

CSC has also hosted State Championships — the Elementary Championships in 2012, the High School/Middle School Championships in 2013 and 2016, and the Grade Level Championships in 2014.

In 2012 CSC revived the Cincinnati Open as an annual weekend tournament for players of all ages, which is usually played in the latter half of April. Final results from past Cincinnati Opens since 2012 are posted on our Archive page.

Cincinnati offers a number of other opportunities for tournament competition and other chess activities. On our other opportunities page you will find additional information as well as links to other chess sites that might be of interest.

In addition to the results from prior CSC events, our Archive contains game records of a number of interesting games from various CSC events.
