CHESS this Sunday Sept. 19th at Starbucks!!
No less than 20 players came by our Starbucks venue last Wednesday to enjoy chess games over the boards! Sam C. was there early, and he was the first to solve the early-bird chess puzzle on his first try to win a free tall Starbucks drink of his choice!
After Sam came several players, namely Hasseb, Matthew, Mark, Irakli, Bert (long time no see, Bert!), Ranen, Armen, Alwyn, Mike T., Olaf (another new player!), John S., Chris Th., Maria, Arturo (yet another new player!), Michael J., Serena, Omar, Isaacqui, and Rich K. !! However, we will not be seeing Michael & Serena until the holidays, as they have now returned to their studies at UCLA in Southern California. A highlight of Wednesday's session was a grueling match between Mark and Rich, with Rich managing to eke out the win!
We meet again this Sunday, September 19, 2021, at the Starbucks located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, CA (just up from the intersection of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd.). Come by anytime between 4:00p.m. - 8:00 p.m. All ages and skill levels are welcome! There are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice), so see you there!
The early bird chess puzzle will be a continuing feature. The first one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink! Also: we'll be having USCF rated Quads in October, so stay tuned!!
