Old Boy Chess Club

So today I was at a Newtown poker joint to catch up with a friend of mine. He's sort of just an above average player chess-wise, but there they call this guy, "Vassily". Grandmaster Vassily to be exact.

Surrounded by gamblers, our wily friend Vassily once suckered a near total beginner into a $200-a-game bet. As you might expect, Vassily cleaned up!

Anyway, we're walking up King St when, suddenly, Vassily tells me about a special kind of chess club that holds their meets on the first Thursday of each month somewhere in Newtown. A quick search on Google pointed me to this: the Old Boy Chess Club. And here are a few pics I found courtesy of Nosey in Newtown blog. Might check that out.
