General Chess Federation in Berlin (from 1901)
On April 26, 1901, a Berlin Association was founded, which is considered the predecessor of today's Berlin Chess Association . At that time, the General Chess Federation in Berlin was founded by the associations Berliner Schachgesellschaft , Schachclub Springer , Berliner Chessverein von 1876 , the Wochenschach editorial team , Schachclub Turm , SC Anderssen , SK Nord and the New Berlin Chess Club . The founding associations brought more than 400 members into the association.
The first chairman until 1903 was Wilhelm Pape, after which Richard Steinweg replaced him for two years before Pape took over the management again.
In the summer of 1902, the General Chess Federation in Berlin held its first tournament, which was won by Ossip Bernstein before Moritz Lewitt and Piotrowski.
Free Association of Greater Berlin Chess Clubs (from 1919)
Due to the First World War from 1914 to 1918, the work of the association came to a standstill. The Berlin Schachgesellschaft therefore invited on March 25, 1919 all of Berlin's clubs to discuss the future association life. The Free Association of Greater Berlin Chess Societies was founded and it was decided to join the German Chess Federation . The founding members were the clubs Chess club Anderssen , chess club Bauer , Berlin Chess Club from 1827 , Berlin Chess Club of 1876 , chess department of sports clubs Charlottenburg , chess club Doppelbauer , chess club Springer , chess club South West , chess club Walbrodt , Schöneberg chess club , chess club Schallopp in Steglitz, Schachgesellschaft Steglitz Südende , Schachverein Lichterfelde , Mariendorfer Schachklub , Schachklub Oberspree , Schachklub Pankow and the Karlshorster Schachgesellschaft - together 17 clubs with 850 members.

Renaming to BSV (1922)
The Free Association of Greater Berlin chess clubs decided on 6 April 1922, the formation of a Brandenburg Chess Federation . The Free Association is to remain as a sub- association under the name of the Berlin Chess Association . The Lausitz Chess Federation for the south and east, a Märkischer Chess Federation for the north and a Havelländischer Chess Federation for the west around Berlin are intended as further sub-associations .
Ehrhardt Post remains chairman until World War II .
Joins the Brandenburg Chess Association (1928)
On December 16, 1928, an extraordinary meeting unanimously decided to dissolve and join the Brandenburg Chess Association with the Berlin Chess Association. Thus, the associations Schachklub Bauer EV Berlin , Schachklub Steinitz Berlin , Schachklub Turm Berlin , Schachklub 1906 Berlin , Schachverein 1880 Berlin , Schachgesellschaft Oberschöneweide , Potsdam Chess Society 1859 and Brandenburg Chess Society were transferred to the Berlin Chess Association.
BSV in the post-war period (from 1945)
Due to allied regulations, the Berlin sports clubs are only gradually being approved again. Until then, the association exists as the Berlin chess division. Franz Hänicke is the division manager.
Ehrhardt Post died on August 1, 1947 after a serious illness at the age of 65 in Berlin.
In 1949, Hermann Gulweida replaced Hänicke as division manager. A little later, the Berlin Chess Association was formed under the leadership of Erich Stallknecht. The Berlin chess division continued its work.
In January 1951, the board of the Berlin Chess Federation resigns completely and Erich Stüber is elected as the new chairman. He remained in office until his death on March 31, 1965.
Division (around 1952)
In 1952 the Berlin Chess Federation also felt the consequences of the division. The Berlin team championship 1952/53 has to be carried out separately. In the east of Berlin, the District Expert Committee (BFA) Chess Greater Berlin takes over the leadership. Otto Ruppe becomes the first chairman of the BFA.
Up until the 1989/90 season there was a separate game operation. In the Berlin Chess Federation ( West Berlin ), the chairmen will be Alfred Kinzel , Alfons Henske, Heinrich Burger and Alfred Seppelt for the next few years . Kurt Eberhardt and Gerhard Mietzelfeldt follow in the BFA.
As early as the 1990/91 season, the Berlin Chess Association and the BFA, which has since been renamed the Berlin Chess Association , have joint operations. The merger of the two associations was decided on January 1, 1991. Alfred Seppelt is elected chairman at the Association Day on March 23, 1991. Gerhard Mietzelfeldt declined to run for office.
The new millennium
Seppelt did not take part in 2004 for reasons of age. His successor , who was unanimously elected, was Matthias Kribben , who was also Vice President of the German Chess Federation from 2007 to 2009 . In 2010 Kribben lost to his challenger Carsten Schmidt. Schmidt had been a member of the association's presidium since 1995, first as a state youth warden, later under Kribben as vice-president.
