Chess club seeking more players
March 22, 2019
Chess players all over the world recognize March as the month World Chess Champion, American Bobby Fischer was born.
"Playing chess is a great way to make friends wherever you go," said Gil Lederman, who has organized a weekly game at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center. "Hopefully in the future we'll have a great chess club."
Lederman said two regulars at the Gardnerville chess game, Marco Delosreyes and Wes Mattice, are tournament-level players.
The Topaz Ranch Estates resident said games are 1 p.m. Tuesdays.
He said Delosreyes used to play chess in Central Park, N.Y.
According to Lederman, the three men are planning a simultaneous chess event, where Mattice plays several others at once.
