Mating in City of Churches

If you haven't had enough chess after the Gold Coast or just want to get in some weekend action, then a couple of days in the city of churches could be just the thing. On 4 and 5 July will be the Freytag Checkmate Open, dubbed as "South Australia's #1 Weekend Chess Event".

Already registered to participate are two GMs - David Smerdon and Daryl Johansen.

Sadly, I won't be there. I've just checked webjet.com.au as well as flightcentre.com.au and for the cost of flying to and from Adelaide, I might as well head over to Bangkok!

But if you're going, I recommend checking out the Emily Grace Hotel on 232 Waymouth Street, Adelaide. It's the perfect joint for some R&R after a hard day's OTB combat.
