Classical Chess Sparring Club

40 members
For players who want to play classical chess for improvement, organize and play sparring games against elite players with the peace of mind that they will most likely not be computers (I check profiles beforehand). A place for analysis, chess discussion, and advice. The goal is to create a community of players who are dedicated to improving their chess, not their rating. Will generally be restricted to more elite players (classical > 2000) .
Location: Magnus Carlsen's Basement
