CHESS this Wednesday Feb. 9!
Hi Everyone !
Despite Starbucks, our usual venue, being closed, we're having a great time with fun, challenging chess over the boards right across the parking lot, at the spacious Carl's Jr. Restaurant!
Come by anytime after 3:00 p.m., the afternoon of Wednesday, February 9, 2022, at the Carl's Jr. Restaurant, and enjoy the game! Players who are not in our club tournament are welcome to observe tournament games in progress, and may certainly play other non-tournament players (as Sam, Eric Z., and Mark did). Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome!
Our 1st Club Tournament of 2022, in progress:
At 4:30 p.m. this Wednesday (Feb. 9), at the Carl's Jr. Restaurant, several players in our club tournament that began this past Sunday will start their chess clocks to play their third of a total of four rounds, with the last round to be played next Sunday! A total of 8 players, 4 of whom will get their first official USCF ratings, are in the hot but fun, friendly official tournament competition: Chris B., Irakli, Tony, Mike T., Setsal, Yancy, Vishwa, and Matthew (Chris B. and Vishwa will play their third round next Sunday at 3:00p.m.). Players need to arrive early enough to be ready to play at the agreed upon times. Clocks will start on time.
Who is in the lead, ahead of the pack, so far in our club tournament? I hesitate to say who, as the clear lead can change suddenly . . . plus, uh . . . I don't want to brag . .. .. (heh heh . . . lol) . . . .
See you soon,
