Optiver is thrilled to announce our upcoming UK-wide Chess Championship! This is your chance to battle it out against the best of the best and be crowned one of the top 6 chess players in all UK Universities. The online qualifiers will take place on April 17th, where you will face off against fierce competitors from across the country on Lichess.com
We know that every chess player is unique, so we’ve created three different levels to cater to all skill sets. Whether you’re a seasoned player or just starting out, there’s a category for you. And, if you make it to the top 2 in your category, you’ll be invited to our London office for an all-expenses-paid trip to the live finals on May 2nd.
But, that’s not all! The winners of each category will have the opportunity to challenge chess Grandmaster, Anish Giri, in a simultaneous match. Can you handle the heat and keep your nerves in check as you take on one of the very best in the game?
Get ready to experience the thrill of the competition.
