MauriceSlide.jpgThe 2013 Cleveland Scholastic Open is set for October 26th. With a variety of awards ranging from college scholarships and job internships to e-readers and gift cards, this will be an elaborate and prestigious event. Grandmaster Maurice Ashley will be present at the tournament analyzing games, interacting with the players, and more.

This event is organized by the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. Delta Alpha Lambda Chapter and will be held at the Student Center in Cleveland State University. 

The day before the event, GM Ashley will be participating in a simultaneous chess exhibition at the Tri-C Metro Campus, where he will be playing against only 25 people. The slots are going quickly so do not miss your opportunity to play (and potentially beat!) Grandmaster Maurice Ashley. All participants will receive a photograph taken with GM Ashley, a signed score sheet, and a signed chess board. Also, winners will receive a very special prize.

There will be five rounds in this tournament and a variety of sections (rated and unrated) so everyone can participate. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Grandmaster Ashley and to play against players from all across the state of Ohio.
