Teaching chess since 2004
|The Fort Bend Chess Club normally meets at the Earl of Sandwich at 1930 Highway 6 in Sugar Land on Sunday nights, from 6:00-8:00.
We appreciate that this restaurant is giving us space to meet in, and we encourage club members to order your dinner there on Sunday nights.
Next Meeting on Feb 9
No meeting on Feb 2nd; the next lesson will be on Feb 9th. That lesson will conclude the Intermediate Tactics topic. The topic will be how to prepare for your combination and then how to defend against a combination.
After this topic ends, we will have two weeks at the Heart of Winter tournament. Then, on March 2, Mr. Wood will start a short lesson on Isolated Queen Pawns.
