The Rochester Chess Center regrets to announce that the 2024 Marchand Open will not be held.

Due to circumstances, we are unable to hold the event.

We know many, especially the long-time participants, will be disappointed at this, but we are committed to bringing back the Marchand Open in spring 2025 for its 44th edition.
