The Connecticut Dreadnoughts are based out of the Chess Club of Fairfield County where our matches are played. This year our team is one of only two to feature four Grandmasters in their roster and will be led by GM Alex Lenderman who recently tied for first place at the US Chess Championships! Meanwhile, our middle and fourth boards have mostly remained the same, however, the addition of Yoon-Young Kim on our fourth board gives us another exciting option and much more flexibility with our lineups.

News: Last year’s sponsor Mr. Paul M. Albert Jr. has generously agreed to match all donations up to a total of $3,500 for the 2014 season!

This is our third year competing in the US Chess League. Be sure to follow our matches live at the Chess Club of Fairfield County or on ICC!

Next Match: Wednesday, October 22nd vs. New England Nor' easters
