20" Professional Tournament Combination Chess Set
Tournament Chess Sets are a staple for clubs, schools, and professional and casual players alike. Our sets all include a roll-up vinyl chess board and pieces. The chess carry bags pictured are available as extras (see below). Tournament sets are a cost effective way to have a large, durable chess set. Extra Queens are OPTIONAL with this set. Available color options are shown. Please select two colors for chess pieces.
The 20" is a standard vinyl chess board designed to make transport for a larger chess set much easier than a flat or folding board. These pieces also fit quite well on the 17" Medium vinyl board for an even more practical solution without sacificing durability and style. We recommend you roll it up with the squares facing out in order to prevent it from curling up on the board. Chess bags are available can that further protect and store your chess board.
Also available are silicone roll-up chess boards. It is designed to make transport for a larger chess set much easier than a flat or folding board and is the newest technology for wrinkle-free chess boards. Because silicone is baked, once it is set it can never lose its shape, so you will never have to worry about the board curling. It is also thinner, making it easier to put in a larger variety of chess storage bags. This board is machine washable.
Mousepad chess boards are quickly becoming a favorite among chess enthusiasts because they have a soft surface with a thicker board than a vinyl or silicone chess mat, they always lay flat, and they do not slide around due to the grippy bottom. Because the board doesn’t slide around during play, this type of board is preferred by fast chess players for rapid chess, blitz chess, and bullet chess when less time than normal tournament play is allotted to the players. The padded surface of the board also extends the life of weighted chess pieces. The board can be rolled-up to fit inside a chess bag.
There are several optional extras available at an additional discount when purchased with a set:
Chess bags are not necessary, but can be helpful for transport.
A "Loop" bag is a small, zippered nylon pouch for the pieces, with a nylon loop on the bottom that you can slide a roll-up chess board through.
A "Long" bag includes several extras - individual pouches hold the pieces, and there is a place to put a chess clock. The board is also secured within.
We also have a variety of chess clocks available.
