CHESS at Starbucks Resumes this Wednesday, January 5, 2022!!
Happy, Happier New Year 2022 to everyone as we resume our fun, challenging, over-the-board chess sessions this Wednesday, January 5, 2022, at our Starbucks venue located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton (just a couple driveways up from the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. & Clayton Rd., Concord, Calif.) !
Come by anytime from 3:00 p.m. on through the closing time of 8:00 p.m. Players arriving early have a chance to be the first to solve a chess puzzle on the first try to win a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!
We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters and all in between! There are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice).
Don't be surprised if some players are practicing for the upcoming 13th Annual Golden State Open Chess Tournament set for this month's long Martin Luther King weekend (Jan. 14-17, 2022) at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Concord! There are several skill divisions in the tournament, from beginners to masters. Players can decide to play it over 4 days, 3 days, or even 2!! There's even a Blitz tournament included! If you need more info about it all, check the tournament out on line, or see me in person at our Starbucks venue.
See you soon,
