satranc (chess) at molly’s cafe

games people play– at molly’s cafe.  lately there has been a lot of chess action, even during the jam.  pairs of intense players were engaged in virtual war in the back salon.

bruce and andrew

there are only two chess boards so far (one doubles as tavla or backgammon).  i will get some new pieces for one and hopefully find a better board.

sait and bayram

these days andrew has been beating most people, but he was one-upped by a young turkish student– who had been teaching satranc at a college.  it was a good game, needless to say.

if you are into chess, stop by molly’s cafe to spend some time on chess strategy.
