The 2018 NC Closed State Championship was organized by the Charlotte Chess Center this past weekend, November 16-18, at the Hilton University Place in Charlotte. With 122 players, it narrowly missed last year's record of 125 players, which was the largest closed State Championship in NC history.

In addition to the $4000 prize fund, the NCCA contributed trophies to the top players in each class, as well as the top Senior in each class.
