Giant Chess in Queenstown

Months after that very memorable tournament, Queenstown seems to be retaining its connection with our game. A giant chess set will now be created at Coronet Peak to complement the mountain biking activities.

Operations manager Alli Edwards: "These giant chess set pieces are so much fun. There is just something fascinating about walking amongst the pieces while considering your next move. The pieces are scaled to regular chess size with the King standing 640mm tall".

Oh by the way, our deal offer to Murray Chandler still stands.

First time I see your ChessBase article. Excellent writing!

You should buy Rowson's books, even if Murray declines the offer ;)
