CHESS this Sunday, February 25, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

We meet again, as we do every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, this coming Sunday, February 25, 2024 at our regular Starbucks venue from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time. Players can come and go anytime, there are no dues, and there's no purchase required (but it would be nice). There usually is a chess puzzle to solve, with the first one solving it on the first try winning a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!

This past Wednesday saw at least 10 players play chess over the boards: Irakli (who has bragging rights for being the first to solve the rather tricky chess puzzle, albeit on the third try), Ben C., Tony, FBen, Matthew, Chris N., Daniel, Mike T., Evan, and another occasional, and at times also a rather loquacious player who lately has given me a couple, quite different names...

Stay tuned for more details regarding our next USCF-rated club tournament. Expect the time control to be G/40;d.10 instead of G/45;d.10 and that it will be held on either Sunday, March 17th or Sunday, March 24th, at the Carl's Jr. across the parking lot from our usual Starbucks venue, with a starting time of 10:30 a.m. Format to be Quads or Groups of Six. Participating players are required to be current members of the US Chess Federation. To join or renew membership, simply go online at For those interested, I would in turn be interested in your preference as to competing on March 17 or March 24. Entry Fee = $25 if paid before tournament date, $30 if paid on date of tournament. If you have questions or need more info, let me know.

See you soon!
