CHESS this Sunday, March 20, 2022 at Starbucks!
Our next session is at Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, CA, this Sunday, March 20, 2022. We sometimes have USCF-rated matches at the Carl's Jr. Restaurant across the parking lot from Starbucks, so always check there too, as you can play chess (or other games) just for fun at either place!
At least 10 players came by to enjoy the game of chess at our usual Starbucks venue this past Wednesday. We missed seeing Ken, Vishwa and Eric Z. who were with us at last Sunday's session at Carl's Jr., but we still had some fun and rather challenging games (and a chess puzzle) this time at Starbucks with a group comprised of Tony, Matthew, Setsal, Mike T., Herb, Alwin, John S., Bert, Ranen and Irakli (who solved the puzzle).
We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters and all in between. There are no dues. There is no purchase requirement (but it would be nice). We meet every Sunday and Wednesday 3:00 p.m. through to the 8:00 p.m. closing time. Come and go anytime. Early arrivals usually get the best tables and often 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!
Ranen, Yancy, Irakli, and Vishwa will soon be playing their USCF-rated Quad's 3rd and final round either this Sunday or by next Wednesday, to complete our club's 2nd Quad and overall third tournament of this year! Stay tuned for the results of the 2nd Quad, as our club's 3rd rated Quad will soon be forming! Results of our 1st and 2nd Quads will be reported to USCF this week, now that the USCF server for such reports and ratings updates is back online.
See you soon,
