CHESS this Sunday, November 13 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

We meet Sunday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 p.m. on through closing time at our usual Starbucks venue, and despite the chilly weather last Wednesday, more than a dozen came to play chess over the boards! There for the fun of it were Sam, Tony, Mike T., Olaf, John E., John S., new players Duncan and Angel, along with Connor, Yancy, Ernie, Donovan and Andreena! Yancy solved the chess puzzle on the first try. Players arriving early usually have a chance to be the first to solve a chess puzzle on the first try to win a free tall Starbucks drink!

We're located just up from the corner of Clayton Rd. and Ygnacio Valley Rd., at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center. Players come and go anytime, there are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice).

This Sunday, Nov. 13, 2022, it will mainly be chess for the fun and challenge of the game, and there might be some players who may want to play in a USCF-rated Blitz tournament. Let's see how that develops (players need to agree on entry fee and format, plus prize allocation depending on number of entries). In any case, drop in, get your chess fix, make new friends, renew old friendships!

Results of last Sunday's tournaments have been reported to the USCF, and ratings of players who participated have been adjusted. The USCF usually sends players notification of new ratings, or players may access the info on the website. We will more than likely have another USCF-rated club tournament in December, so stay tuned, see you soon!
