Happy Holidays!

Christmas is coming - and that means, no internet connection for me down at my mum's.

So, Streatham & Brixton Chess Club's blog is now officially on holiday until the New Year.

In the mean time, don't forget the Richmond Rapidplay coming up early January - nor the Chessabit Tournament later in the month.

And if Santa brings you nothing interesting to read, why not download a free book on Botvinnik's secret games? Or if there's nothing on TV - Chess Fever (featuring a cameo from Capablanca) is well worth a watch.

Or if you fancy stretching your brain power, you can try a nearly impossible quiz - or more realistically, some fun chess puzzles. Also on the fun front, find out your Kasparov Number, and check out the Blunders of His Great Predecessors.

So, happy holidays; have a great Christmas and new year. Barring surprises, our blog will be back in 2007 with more chess news, puzzles, links, fun, games, and anything else anyone can think of.

Where is the picture from? It looks somehow familiar but may be there is only one manufacturer for park chess tables in the world.
Happy holidays to you, too!

It's from . . . a random google image search! For 'chess and snow' - something like that . . .
