Bird River Studios in Williamsburg has been very active in the local popularization of chess- we have after-school classes twice a week and regularly organize tournaments, which attract players of all levels with their fun&friendly atmosphere and the great trophy prizes generously given out to top 10 players in each section. The next tournament is going to take place this coming Sunday, November 23rd. There will be 4 rounds and we start at 10am in 3 different sections: Beginner (unrated, scholastic players under 14) , U-1000 (Rated,scholastic players under 14) and the Open Section (Rated,for scholastic players rated over 1000 and beginner adults). Games will be played using clocks in the rated sections with 30 minutes per player per game. Please go here for details and to register. Looking forward to seeing you at the board!

I’m starting new group classes at the beautiful Bird River Studios facility in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They have a lot of cool classes including studio art, theater and acting, creative writing and more, and now it’s time to start a chess club! Currently we’re taking reservations for after-school classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning at 3:30. We’ll start from the basics, showing the kids all the fun they can have checkmating the king, and will move on forward- our ambition is to have a new cool neighborhood chess club for kids and adults alike with regular tournaments and lectures. Come join us! Please click on this link which will take you to the Bird River’s website where you can make the reservation.
