This is such a wonderful chess club at the Mechanics institute. The tournament directors and assistants are wonderful. The crowd is intelligent and fun and welcoming. If you play chess, come on down for the Tuesday Night Marathon or one of the many weekend tournaments. This place should have way more reviews and all of them should be 5 stars!
Met a man named Jerry who liked to play a man named Tony. Jerry liked playing the Latvian gambit. Excellent play by both. Spent two wonderful evenings at club. They close 9PM sharp on Wednesday and Thursday when I was there. November 1 and 2nd of 2017. 2nd night I met Jerry again playing John this time. Again lots of fireworks. Plus I played two games against a man named Art.
A great place with incredible chess history and culture.
Amazing club plus library Beautiful old building
Very well kept chess club. They teach you free lesson here too.
