Come and learn from the Dutch master! [That's not me by the way, it's "joris", who's an excellent coach!]

We had a fine session today and are now planning on holding games EVERY Saturday at the Bookhouse & Coffee Shop from 3pm onwards.

Please PM me if you are interested! We can play both international and Thai chess.

:D

Chess is extremely good for the brain. And here's why: http://www.chessology.com/articles/100- ... -chess.php

Please feel free to come and join us on Saturdays at 3pm in the Bookhouse & Coffee Shop.

What a treat on Saturday watching Geoff using all the techniques he has been shown since the club started (without any help!!) to finally overcome the dutch master with combination play, pins, discovered checks and mating attacks. Well done Geoff. Hope the clock is ok Martin!!

When I drove home I was considering giving up playing chess. What a disaster!!
But I found out why! I ran my beer-program on my TI83 calculator and discovered what went wrong.
The average was ok, but my standard-deviation was a bit low this saterday.
Beer number 6 killed me. Gauss-curve was running very steep at that time!
Additional condition: it was the 13th of 11th month. Why do people play chess on such a date?!

.... ok, ok. I admit. You both played a GREAT game!!!!! =D> cu next saterday! I have been warned!

Due to Songkran there will be no chess this week (16th of april 2011).
Next week, normal again: Nobis bar, saterday 23rd of april, from 1.00 pm.
However, Mike and me will be playing this week (16th) at the Soul bar from 1.00 pm.
In for a game? Adress? Do a search of the forum, it will be around somewhere.

Hope to see you, Martin.
