How long have you been playing chess?

I learned as a child, but started playing in MacArthur Park about 3 years ago. I like Plummer Park, and the Chess Park at the Santa Monica Beach, near the pier. Occasionally, I will play at Tang's in Silver Lake.

What is your estimated rating?

I've never been in a tournament, never been rated officially, but depending on the day, sky, blood glucose, and coffee level- Pick a number between 1 and 10... Come to the BBQ and rate me.


Hello all you sand-baggers and patzers!! I joined Meet up a few months ago, then I joined this club just last September. I went to the first two Chess events , and they were both fun and interesting. I'm from Boston, and Florida, and now LA 7 years.

What Matthew Di G. is saying about this Meetup Group

We have a very good mix of strong and beginning players. Amy had never played before, and Omid was very patient in teaching her the basics, opening moves and she even played her first game!! We nurture our newcomers.
