Welcome to the new look for Austin Chess Tournaments. After over a decade of operation, the old web server gave up during the pandemic, forcing us to create a new site. As always this will be your best source for information about Central Texas chess events. We are adding content to the site daily. Same people behind the scenes, just a new look.
