Jesuit Dallas Chess Club

COVID-19 Open Tournament Fundraiser Instructions

Cole Frutos and The Jesuit Dallas Chess Club hosted an online open chess tournament fundraiser on May 9th to support local community efforts to fight the negative impacts of COVID-19. The tournament was a huge success thanks to the tournament's 32 participants, the Jesuit Chess Club and Jesuit's faculty and staff.  The tournament raised almost $700 to support Minnie’s Food Pantry, a non-profit organization feeding over 5,000 people monthly. Minnie’s Food Pantry has seen a 39% increase in the number of people needing assistance, while its shelves are going bare.​


Congratulations to Cole Frutos ’23 for winning the tournament. Cole went undefeated through five rounds to become the new #1 chess player at Jesuit, followed by #2 Angel Guevara '22 and #3 Spencer Jewesson '23.

Thanks to our many donors and supporters--it is special to see the chess community make its move against COVID-19! Chess Moves would like to specially thank the Texas Chess Association not only for its help with this fundraiser but for what it does for chess in Texas.  Also a big thanks to Tom Crane, GM Babakuli Annakov, GM Jeffery Xiong and IM Keaton Kiewra.  All of your support means so much to us and the DFW area.
