CHESS this Wednesday, May 3, 2023 at Starbucks!
There's lots of chess over the boards this Wednesday afternoon, May 3, 2023 from 3pm on through closing time at our usual Starbucks venue, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center, just up from the Concord corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd. We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, same time, same place! We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, there are no dues, there is no purchase requirement, and there's usually a chess puzzle to see who will be the first player to solve it on the first try, to win a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!
Last Sunday several players enjoyed the afternoon of chess, and we also concluded our club's April fun, USCF-rated tournament. There for the games were Ohm and his family, along with Myles, Juliana, Kevin, Tony, Mike T., Red, Sam C., Jay, Vin, Vin Sr., and Roman!
Our USCF-rated club tournament concluded with Red once again taking 1st Place (and it's noted that he has won two club tournaments in a row, having now won 7 straight USCF-rated matches! Coming in a clear 2nd was Tony T., and tied for 3rd Place were Matthew and Trenton!
Our next club tournament may be for 3 rounds or matches, either in Quads or groups of six, all scheduled for Sunday, May 14, 2023, same time control (G/45;d10), with a first match starting time of 11:00 a.m. and an Entry Fee of only $25 (as, usual, at least 90% of entry frees are returned as cash prizes). Let me know if you're up for it! See you soon!
