Welcome to Charlie's Chess Club!

Join us

Welcome to New Mexico’s #1 site for all things chess. Established in 2012, Charlie’s Chess Club has offered a variety of events to help broaden and enrich chess in New Mexico.  It was first conceived by the founder after losing his new obtained expert title, when he came to realization he would have to wait for over four months to play in a rated game in his home state, in order to attempt to get his title back.  Understandably distraught by this thought, he decided to start running his own tournaments, and as they say, the rest is history.   


We hold several events throughout the year, generally smaller in nature, with players ranging from absolute beginner to seasoned master.  Our events are centered on player improvement.  In the future, we have aspirations of recreating events similar to the Southern Rocky Fide Open.  However, our continued success and future ambitions are reliant on the support we receive from our community, so we hope you’ll attend every event you can.
