Hi, my name is Anvit Rao and I am a High Schooler in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I have been playing chess for 10 years and it has been a great way for me to meet and have fun with friends. We always enjoyed playing in tournaments in the Ann Arbor Area.


Recently, however, I noticed that there were fewer opportunities for chess players in Ann Arbor to play in tournaments. That is why, in the Fall of 2017, I decided to run my own USCF chess tournaments.


These tournaments are open to players of all ages and skill levels and are held roughly every other month. 


I can't wait to see you at the next Aspen Knights Quad!
