Players make moves at DeKalb chess event
DeKALB – When Aaron Bartelt moved to DeKalb in April, he Google searched “DeKalb chess” and eventually found himself at a tournament.
Bartelt, a Milwaukee native, was among 28 participants at the U.S. Chess Federation Home for the Holiday event on Saturday at First Congregational United Church of Christ in DeKalb. Players in the three-round tournament were as young as eight and as old as 80.
Each player was required to be a member of the chess federation, a nonprofit organization that has a rulebook players must follow.
