I am compiling a list of chess venues in London - not just chess clubs, which appears to be easy to find, but cafes and other places to play informally during the day and during the week.What an excellent idea - and frankly I'm sure it's not just tourists who'd like to know this. I wouldn't mind having a few such venues up my sleeve myself.
If you know of any such venues, please let me know dates and times, the address and postcode and give me a contact number, as both Chess & Bridge and my own experience shows that most players who visit London as tourists want to play some chess at some point - and there is no information about it online!
So, can you help and do you know of such places? Click here to email Adam, or leave a comment below.
PS. We've had nerd points, we've had Nostradmus points, and today disco points are on offer for anyone who can say why.
Err... Does DISCO=DIScover Chess Options???
Nice try! But I'm afraid not...
Tomorrow sees the $20m cricket match in the Standford Super Series in the West Indies. Cricket under lights, how the tradionalists would frown...
A bit of a circus really, not really cricket.
Kind of like disco chess...
Kasparov v Short in the Hippodrome in 1987 - complete with flashing lights and loud music as the tuxedo clad duo played a series of 25 mina side games?
Alas, those disco points remain unclaimed . . .
Outside the national theatre in Sofia, BG. Old guys play there all summer in the sun,
Was Adam Raoof in Sister Sledge?
Oof! Now the actual answer will come as a disappointment...
That's worth knowing but doesn't really count as a London venue methinks.
Cricket under bad lights ... how the players frown.
Yes, Jonathan, frowns all round it seems, but as they say - a million dollars turns a frown upside down...if you win of course!!
what's the bloody answer then T.C.?
The title of the piece "Let's Play Chess In Public Places" is a reference to the 1978 disco classic "Penthouse presents pulsating disco and romantic moods for loving and dancing: The Love Symphony Orchestra", track one of which is called "Let's Make Love In Public Places".
I'm amazed no-one spotted it.
