Chess Club

Whether you want to know a bishop from a knight or you’re working on the Sicilian, the UT Dallas Chess Club is the place to improve your game.

Students, faculty and staff of all skill levels gather for recreational chess Fridays at 2:30 – 5:30 p.m.

Please note that there is a difference between the internationally competitive chess team and the recreational student chess society. The student chess society provides hobbyist players with a leisurely game of chess in a social environment. For more information about meetings and activities, please contact Suhasini Sundar, president of the UT Dallas Student Chess Society.

Chess Puzzle

This game is interactive and can be played without leaving this page.

Move a piece by placing your mouse cursor over it, dragging the piece to a square, and releasing.

If the puzzle does not allow you to make a move, then it is an illegal move which is not permitted. Try again.
