NEENAH - The 77th annual Wisconsin chess championship is underway in Neenah.
It's going on at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk.
The three day event wraps up Monday.
The tournament travels throughout the state.
Neenah hosted it once before, in 2005.
Money and trophies will be awarded to the winners.
The tournament features players of all ages and skill levels.
"We offer three different sections. The premiere section is for the very best players in the state. Then we have a reserve, average players. And then novice for newer players, people who may have only played for a few months," said Mike Selig, chess tournament director.
Organizers say there are limits for how long the games can last.
For the premiere section, it's six hours.
They said they changed it, because some games lasted 11 hours.

When is it work? When is it abuse? The line can sometimes be blurry, when it comes to dairy farmers dealing with cows. These questions have recently been raised, after video surfaced, showing animal abuse at a local dairy farm.
When your doctor prescribes medication, you assume it's safe, but some people don't realize how dangerous it can be, if it's abused. A group of local high school students helped make a movie to shine a light on the problem.
