Friday Night Chess

Friday night speed chess, most of the time called “Blitz”, starts about 8:00 pm. But if Blitz is not your “speed”, play with different time controls or without the clock. But play, one on one with an opponent you can see! Online chess is mostly cheaters (using cell phone or computer engine) now days. Sure you might play one game against someone, but some how the next game you play that person plays at 2800 strength! So play with people you can see!! The world is becoming a digital playground, people are not able or want to face their fellow humans today. You see the masses walking in a daze with some kind of digital device in their hands. Do I need to mention spelling or grammar? Studies have been released saying that cell phone are as addicting as level 4 narcotics. Please, put down the cell phone and pick up a pawn.  We are open at 5:30 pm on Fridays and some of the better players (experts or masters) show up around 8 pm. Come on down to the oldest chess club in the nation in the same location. Love to see you, young and old, male or female, well just every body! If you want to learn how to play or learn to play even better, we can help as we have the best chess coaches in Tampa Bay!  The club is open Mondays, Wednesday and Friday from about 1 pm till the last member leaves and locks the door.   It is your move! 1. e4… best by test!
