What we're about

Chess can be considered an intellectual art where two opponents brutally battle out various systems in an effort to crush the other person's opproach. This cut throat and thrilling game offers unparalleled adventure into a world of deep analysis. There is slow chess as well as speed chess using timers. Are you a speed demon or a slow yet powerful tank. Can you handle the intensity and addictive nature of this ancient and well respected game? Have you ever wanted to play chess?

Welcome to Tampa Chess Meetup. We have existed and have been meeting up since July 8, 2017. We meet on different days of the week. Anyone can join. Beginners are welcome as well as more advanced players. My name is Mike I run the club. When I'm not at the club I freelance teaching chess for an agreed upon rate based on distance, time and any other relevant factors. If you want some lessons please message me on Meetup.com and we can talk about it.

We originally started meeting at Abby's Health Food Cafe but we moved to Barnes and Noble. The address is listed on the event page.
