 Michigan Chess Association State Title

 

​Michigan Open

The Michigan Open is our state championship, traditionally held over Labor Day weekend.

 

  Report

 
Seth Homa repeats as 2014 Michigan State Champion
 

The 2014 Michigan was held over the weekend of August 29 through September 1 at the Doubletree Hotel in Dearborn. Seth Homa was the Champion for the second consecutive year.

For the first time, the Michigan Speed Championship was included as separate side event on Sunday between rounds 4 and 5. This was by far the largest attendance for the Speed event with 57 total players. It was run as a 5 round double swiss (play each opponent twice) so there would be a definite end time and everyone would be done for the evening round.​
