The States Chess Cup Match: Looking for Maine Players

07.30.20 Saumik Narayaan, a talented young organizer from Minnesota, is organizing an online chess match between states modeled after a series of matches played between the state of Minnesota and the province of Manitoba dating back to 1935. Each state will field four players who will play four games at 15 minutes + 2 seconds per match with one match contested each week. If you are interested in participating in this competition please email MECA secretary Wyatt Hendrix igmwhendrix@gmail.com. Here's more information.

Maine is looking to field a team for the States Chess Cup Match.


While some of the details for the league are still up in the air, here is what we have so far:

Four players per side, with an average rating under 2200.

Team captains are allowed to rotate their lineups from week to week, though players may only play for their home state.

Each state will play one match a week, with the league starting in early August.

Similar to the Pro Chess League, each player will play four games of 15+2 per match, one against each opponent.
