CHESS this Sunday, November 6th at Starbucks!
Well more than a dozen players, including family members, were on hand to enjoy an afternoon and evening of chess at our usual Starbucks venue this past Wednesday: Bert was there along with Matthew, Irakli, Mark, Yancy, Conner Rdl.; Ohm and family; Tony T.; new teen player Jack; Meredith, Eric Z.; and Donovan and Andreena!
Our next session is this Sunday, November 6, 2022, starting at the usual time of 3:00 p.m. and going on through the closing time of 8:00 p.m. on weekends. We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon at the Starbucks located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd. in the Clayton Shopping Center, just up from the corner of Clayton Rd. and Ygnacio Valley Rd.
Players can come and go anytime, there are no dues, and there is no purchase requirement (but it would be nice). We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters! Players arriving early usually have a chess puzzle to solve. The first one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink!
If there are enough players interested either this Sunday, or next Sunday, we'll have a USCF-rated Rapid Tournament, with Time Control of G/10;d2. Entry Fee to be agreed upon by all players signing up for it, latest suggestion is for it to be $10 with cash prize distribution to be determined based on the number of entries (as usual, 85%-90% returned as cash prizes, with the balance to USCF for reports processing and ratings adjustments, with some left over for maybe a cheese danish for the TD). Starting time and number of rounds= TBD. Location = Our usual Starbucks venue.
See you soon, come by and enjoy making new friends, renew old friendships!
