CHESS this Sunday March 27 at Starbucks!
Play fun, challenging chess over the boards this Sunday, March 27, 2022, at our usual Starbucks venue, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Station Shopping Center, just up from the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Valley Rd. in Concord, CA!
We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:00pm on through 8:00p.m., come and go anytime, we welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters, and there are no dues, and there is no purchase requirement (but it would be nice).
Last Wednesday saw several players enjoy the game, and we welcomed Rob N., our newest player to the club! There to welcome Rob were Tony, Setsal, Mike T., Sam, Yancy, Irakli, Matthew, Michael J. and Serena!
Our club's 3rd USCF-rated Quad of 2022 will conclude next Wednesday with a final match, that being between Sam and Ken. In the meantime, results of our 1st and 2nd Quads of this year have been published in our previous email, and the results have been submitted to the USCF for the ratings adjustments. Looking ahead, as interest in rated matches grows, our club may hold a larger tournament, similar to the 8-player tournament we had earlier this year. There's also been interest in holding a blitz tournament, as well as a classic round-robin tournament.
See you soon,
