Pre-Super Bowl Downtown Chess Meetup

Let's connect again at our regular central downtown location at a Starbucks close to the Red Line-Grand & Michigan Ave next to Embassy Suites.

The Super Bowl starts at 5:30pm that day, so come on out and play from about 1-4pm will give you plenty of time to get back home and watch the game. The pre-game shows are boring anyways; the Bears didn't come close this year so we can talk about who will win between Colts & Saints.

Please RSVP so we can tell how many to expect.

    Another good turnout with lots of competetive games, some new players, and even some games of Monster Chess (King + 4 pawns vs.; full set but King get 2 moves in a row!). Beware the Monster....

    I met Bruce -- good guy, willing to share his experience...humble and approachable. Played against Tom and lost ... good opponent, and let me stay in the game after a few poor moves. Also played Dominik 3 games...hoped I provided a decent challenge during three defeats. I bought a chess set from Bruce, along with a nice travel bag. Good deal at $35. See you again in 2 weeks.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
