Hi Everyone . . . !
We'll have a special chess
session this Wednesday evening, December 7, 2016, from 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at
Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif., come by anytime,
the earlier the better for the best tables, more games, and some really nice,
This Wednesday evening's
special session will feature visiting Chess Master Ronald Cusi, and possibly
Chess Master Manny Perez . . . ! Ronald and Manny will be available to
give some tips to improve one's game, or how best to prepare for an upcoming
tournament (such as the Golden State Open at the Concord Crowne Plaza next
month) . . . Ronald may even have some fun with club players of all skill
levels, such as in a quick simul, or even in speed chess, when he gives each of
his opponents the usual five minutes, while he takes only one minute . . . !
Last week's session was fun,
with Rich K., Tony T., Chris B., Bob C. (long time no see, Bob!), Mike T.,
Chris Th., and -- even longer no time no see -- Dylan K. and Kristen K. . . . !
Special thanks to Chris Th. and Chris B. for welcoming Dylan back with some
interesting chess games, including a "960 Chess" match with Chris Th.
. . . !
This coming Wednesday evening
would be a nice one to come by and see your chess friends, even renew old
friendships, or even make new friends! New players -- all ages, genders,
skill levels -- always welcome! Looking for chess instructors? Just ask!
See you soon,
-- Mike T.
