Report and blitz from Central Park

The Rudolf Rocker Chess Club went to Central Park on Saturday, May 31 and a lot of chess was played. We had up to five boards active and around 20 people come by throughout the day.

The park often has many people on Saturdays in the summer owing to the Central Market for Global Families, but May 31 was really busy with a major shoe giveaway and the season opening of the splash pad.

In the following video, you only get a quick glance when the camera turns, but there’s another table with six people playing plus onlookers. The 58 move blitz game shown here is played with G10 time control.
