CHESS this Sunday, March 17, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time for fun, challenging chess over the boards. As usual, we've got a fun session ahead at our usual Starbucks venue this Sunday, March 17, 2024 and another this coming Wednesday, March 20th. However, the following Sunday, March 24, 2024 we are also having our USCF-rated Club Tournament that, for participating players, starts at 10:45 a.m. at the Carl's Jr. Restaurant which is across the side parking lot from our Starbucks venue! Details (e.g., G/40;d.10, etc.) of the tournament have been posted and are available on our Upcoming Club Tournaments page.

Last Wednesday's session saw about ten players enjoy the game of chess, with Matthew snagging bragging rights for solving the day's chess puzzle, albeit on a subsequent, successful attempt! There with Matthew were Chris N., Daniel C., Mark, Ben C., Tony, Mike T., Evan, and Irakli. The session ended with a very spirited blitzing set of games involving Matthew, Mark and Evan -- and somehow in one rather interesting end game, Matthew made very good use of his tripled pawns!

All ages and skill levels are most welcome, there are no dues, and there's no purchase requirement (but it would be nice), so come on by, get your game up, have some fun, make new friends, even renew old friendships!
