CHESS this Wednesday, Oct. 27 at Starbucks!
There's more chess over the boards this Wednesday afternoon, at our usual Starbucks venue, with an earlier start now that night falls earlier along with colder weather! Come by anytime now between 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.! We're located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, CA, just a couple driveways up from the corner of Clayton Rd. and Ygnacio Valley Rd. in Concord.
As usual, we'll have a chess puzzle to solve for players who arrive early. Solve the puzzle on the first try (touch move!) and win a tall Starbucks drink of choice!
Announcement!: The announcement for the 13th Annual Golden State Open just came out! It's to happen on the long Martin Luther King holiday weekend January 14 - 17, 2022 in Concord, at the Crown Plaza Hotel (right by the Buchanan Fields Airport)! All the specs can be found using the following link:
For our club's new unrated or new provisional-rated players, if you need help deciphering some of the specifications contained in the announcement, just ask me or one of our experienced tournament players, who will be more than happy to help. There's lots of time to practice and get some more rated games in before the Golden State Open ($25,000 Guaranteed Prize Fund, spread over several skill levels, from masters and experts to beginners)!
See you soon,
