Hello chess families!
I hope your spring break has gone well. And what could top it off better than chess club? Please join us is rooms 1B & 1C of the Monroe County Public Library from 1:30 – 3:30 this Sunday.
The beginners will learn about the power of passed pawns. Then, the advanced players will learn how to break the rules by analyzing games in which players successfully deployed their queens in the opening and willfully violated other basic principles to win. For the second hour, a team mock-tournament-director competition will teach the players the finer points of how pairings work.
Congratulations to everyone who played in the Bloomington Chess Open and good luck to everyone playing at Team State finals tomorrow! Mark your calendars for the Ben Harris Spring Chess Open on May 24th at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church.
If you are looking for some chess during the week, consider checking out BuffaLouie’s on Tuesday evenings starting at 7 p.m. at 114 South Indiana Ave., next to Starbucks.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Hello chess families!
Just a (late) reminder that chess club is tomorrow from 1:30 to 3:30 at the Monroe County Public Library. We will be in 1A & 1C (1A is a change from our normal 1B).
The beginners will learn about the power of passed pawns. Then, the advanced players will be introduced to a different way of identifying candidate moves. For the second hour, we will be talking about and playing anti-computer chess variants.
Don’t forget that there is a tournament coming up one week from today in Bloomington. Entries must be received by Thursday. Rounds start at 10 and there is no cost. Adults are also able to play if they have a USCF membership.
May your chess games teach you something new!
We hope to see you at the Monroe County Public Library from 1:30 to 3:30 for chess club this Sunday.
This week, the beginners will tackle the tricky concept of king safety. Then, the advanced group will work through a game which shows the importance of accumulating small advantages and not letting them slip away. For the second hour, everyone is welcome to watch and participate in “The Evaluation is Right,” a chess-themed game show styled after the Bob Barker classic daytime series.
Congratulations to University Elementary 6th & Under, Binford 3rd & Under, and University Elementary 3rd & Under Teams on qualifying for State!
