CHESS this Wednesday Oct. 20th at Starbucks !

Hi Everyone !

Despite much cooler and windy weather with rain finally expected, at least seven players came by our usual Starbucks venue this past Sunday to enjoy the game of chess over the boards and indoors! No player was able to solve the chess puzzle on the first try to win a free drink, as Setsal, Mike T., Ranen, Irakli, Hasseb, Andrew, and Olaf settled in to play mostly blitz and otherwise rapid chess games through the afternoon and early evening . . .

We start our sessions earlier now, given that nightfall comes earlier. Come by anytime between 3:00 p.m. and closing time of 8:00 p.m. to play chess at Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, CA, just a couple of driveways from the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd., in Concord, this Wednesday, October 20, 2021.

We meet every Wednesday and Sunday afternoons, same times, same place. We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters! Players arriving early have a chance to solve a chess puzzle on the first try -- touch move! -- to win a free tall Starbucks drink of choice! There are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice).

Players who wish to compete in USCF-rated Quad(s) need to inform me so I can set it(them) up. So far, Setsal and Irakli are clearly up for a Quad, which is open to anyone who is a member of the US Chess Federation. {If you need info on how to join, or renew your membership, you may go on the USCF website, or join/renew through the mail using the official form available in our club.}

See you soon,
