CHESS this Wednesday April 20th at Starbucks!
We're back in full swing after the Easter weekend this Wednesday afternoon, April 20, 2022, for more chess over the boards at our usual Starbucks venue! Come by anytime from 3:00pm on through closing time -- we welcome players of all skill levels, from beginners to masters!
Players arriving early have a chance to be the first to solve a chess puzzle to win a free tall Starbucks drink of choice! There are no dues, and there is no purchase requirement (but it would be nice).
We welcome yet another player new to the club this past Sunday, a fellow by name of Ethan. On hand for some interesting chess games were Ethan, Matthew, John H., Tony, and Mike T.
Looking ahead, the club will be having another USCF-rated tournament, this time with the Round-Robin format for at least 5 or more players, with three already committing to it. The tournament can be played over two or three sessions, and can be converted into a double round-robin!! Format would include a Time Control of G/45;d10 and an Entry Fee of $23, which includes club costs, and cash prizes for 1st=$50; 2nd=$35; 3rd=$23 (even higher $$ and more win-places the more players)!
See you soon,
-- Mike T.
