There is nothing, I think, that anyone of us would like to do more than simply packing up, like right now, and head off to Europe to play chess. And there's not a nicer place to drop into than the Czech Republic. For those lucky enough to do exactly that, the following info that I've just received from Dr Jan Mazuch will be useful.
Below are the relevant links for the 2009/10 Czech Tour.
24.-31.10. 2009 10th LIBEREC OPEN (Liberec hotel)
14.-21.11. 2009 3rd SOUTH BOHEMIA OPEN (Cesky Krumlov, Vltava hotel)
5.-12.12. 2009 1st PILSEN OPEN (Central hotel)
By the way, when in Prague do check out the Reduta Jazz Club. For affordable but well-equipped accomodation that offers a little bit more than the average hostel, take a look at Miss Sophies.
And if you're looking to check out the local strip joints, my suggestion is to stay away. That is, unless you have plenty of cash.
