Do you play piano? Speak French? Are you Sicilian? The more I learn about chess (I'm just beginning) the more interested I get. Hope to see more at the Paso Chess club meeting on Wednesdays!

Chess is a terrific hobby, and a safe addiction. It is international, I have played many games with friends overseas using the chessboard as our translator. It is fun for children and adults, I have been playing since grade school, and I am still learning. Paso Robles offers a club that invites all ages and all abilities to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in a great new building. We have boards, we have clocks, just show up and play, watch or chat.
And my favorite line – “Time for another game?”

I play chess because it's fun. What other reason is there?

My Favorite Chess Quotes:
" It is a mistake to think that combination is solely a matter of talent, and that it cannot be acquired"-- RETI
"I can see the combinations as well as Alekhine, but I cannot get into the same positions"-- Rudolf SPIELMANN
" The chess-board is the world, the pieces are the phenomena of the Universe, the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature, The player on the other side is hidden from us." -- Thomas HUXLEY (1825-1895).

Chess is more than a game; it’s a sport, -a mental martial art- and a worthy lifetime pursuit. It repays manifold the energy & time we put into it.
