So far it’s the best place to play chess for my son. Beginner Sunday U1100 is a good tournament very easy and well organized. Best for children but also good for adults Under 1100 . They also have two separate rooms for waiting between the rounds.
One of the absolutely historical chess clubs, still remaining open, despite the artificial technological storm forcing the closure of many legendary clubs. This is where the strong American Champion, Frank Marshall, who was an exceptional expert at gambits. Justifiably so, with a magnificently analyzed gambit, rightfully named the Marshall Gambit, had prepared to spring upon the legendary World Champion Capablanca. Who around that time, only after his victory over the legendary Marshall, was slowly becoming to be considered invincible. Until about the time of the tournaments in Margate, against one of the original genius prodigies, a true boy historical legend, Sammy Reshevesky. (Becoming a genius through actual hard work, without the help of any artificial aids such as computers). NOTE; This can all, mostly, be studied about in the magnificently deeply analyzed encyclopedic text masterpieces, of one of the most powerful World Champions. The eminently profound Garry Kasparov. However, Sammy Reshevesky, who was unfortunately, to fail at becoming a world Champion, himself. Because of his other responsibilities of a career in accounting and religious obligations. Nevertheless, when the boy-genius prodigy, Reshevesky, finally did arrive in America. He was interviewed, tested and introduced by the extraordinarily strong, US Champion Frank Marshall. And, thereby continuing in that legacy of excellence, the Marshall Club continues to produce and introduce true Champions. Of the "Ultimate Historical Game of Knowledge". (Because of its newly discovered evidence of its over 2,300 years of "evolution", written of in the ancient Chinese classics). Thus, the Marshall's Club, instructions/lessons, including deep analysis of present day World Championships, with such extraordinarily strong GM's, like Giorgi Kach- eishvili and Irina Krush. Talented in outstanding abilities to teach of numerous complications and principles (such as prophylaxis, etc.) into easily understandable lessons. With future hopes of "invitations" in lessons, by one of the most extraordinarily prestigious champions, Lev Alburt. Who has written an enormous library to help actually help us grow in our own personal chess "Mastery". Extremely highly recommended, Lev's books and analysis. Who, absolutely being, an instructional bridge, of the living historical and contemporary Champions', the tremendously gifted, GM Lev Alburt. Highly recommended 👍👍👍👍👍👍 Absolutely Like 🤙✌💜
Best place to play chess. Very organized weekly tournaments, experienced players of all ages, and a wonderful chess atmosphere. The history of the club and the spirit of the players who played there still resonate.
Marshall Chess Club is unable to get back to you if you ever reach out… I’ve called and emailed 20+ times to receive money that was promised at an event. No response. It’s gotten to the point where I will need to arrive there in person if I want to see this situation corrected. I am writing this review with the hopes that the club sees it, while also warning others that it is currently terribly difficult to get in touch with management.
I was excited to win my first tournament at the Marshall 2 years ago. Unfortunately, getting the prize money has been difficult. I have been contacting them about it for nearly 4 months. The TD's, bless their souls, tried to be helpful to me, but the executive director is completely unresponsive. The club needs to do a better job in paying its players.
