CHESS this Sunday, September 18, 2022!
At least a dozen players were at our usual Starbucks venue for fun, challenging chess over the boards last Wednesday: Sam, John E., Irakli, Bert, Tony, Yancy, Mike T., Matthew, Diego, Maria, Ernie, and Rich K. -- and as usual, several stayed through to closing time! One of the most interesting matches featured Matthew playing Rich, a chess master, in a tight contest all the way to an ending with just kings, a few pawns, and one rook each, with Rich managing to eke out a win!
We meet every Sunday and Wednesday, from 3:00pm through to closing time. Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome. There are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice). We meet again this coming Sunday, September 18, 2022, and I should be able to join everyone there later in the day.
Our next club tournament will be October 22 - 23, 2022, more details to follow, stay tuned!
