Connecticut Chess Magazine - July 2017

Connecticut Chess Magazine on Facebook has a weekly total

reach of 15,700 and weekly engagement from 690 people.

I am experimenting with this new format that saves bandwidth,

especially important for our readers on cell phones.

It is a digest of our Facebook posts from the past three weeks.

We have very few images.  Instead we have links to 130+

chess reports, games, and photos, problems. etc....

46 posts are local chess here in Conn., and 92 posts appeal

to worldwide chess interest.

Chess Praxis to STAUNTON CHESS SETS VINTAGE & NEW Post your sets

I managed to find a store producing chavet#6 as shown on the left of the page. Do they look similar. Except that the left photo the chess pieces they called it European Staunton instead of chavet. Kindly advise. Selling at €89 /- set

http://fb.me/8uGapLn3Q

A few random pics of my Staunton set. The king is 4.25" tall and it has 2 inch squares. The board folds up into a carry case and all the pieces fit inside.

I've had it since 1978. I was in the Army at Ft Lewis, Washington and traded a soldier from the Philippines a 35mm camera for it.

http://fb.me/1pdE6A2i0

Another pic of the 1890's-1900's Russian Chess Set

http://fb.me/8EEhSJ016

To those season collectors this particular chess set which are used in 1st women 1957 olyumpiad are no stranger to them. Its a caught as I considered between a Chavet and Lardy because of the King/ Queen it was been shape.Similarly the rook is Chavet design. As for the pawn it shape like a Lardy too. Strangely the Knight has a slight Resemblance of a Hasting knight torso and including the mane. Mr Mike John Ladzinski considered them as BBC set and Mr Chuck Grau has a German version set. Kodo to this two chess doyen where I learnt much in catching up in mine collection. This particular set which I am featuring is #4 of the 456 style which they the manufacturer considered as stamped on the orignal back of the box. They are in olive wood and rosewood. I am still sourcing for the next 2 sets of different sizes

http://fb.me/FnlqmGVE

Vintage Soviet Knights shown, were the modern Yugoslav/Zagreb Knights patterned after these Knights? As explained by Chuck Grau in another post, the Yugoslav/Zagreb Knights are a modern design and were NOT used in the 1959 Candidates Tournament or any other tournaments during that period.. Dubrovnik sets (possible the 1950 Olympiad pieces) were used with the world famous Dubrovnik Knights.

http://fb.me/uDyAO3Fi

Here's a Soviet set of unknown age, almost new old stock. The black knights have chipped ears, but otherwise, it looks almost new. My guess is the 1930's-40's, but thats only a guess. Opinions?

Expect some backgammon players to join our picnic and play backgammon

in the skittles room.  Backgammon is totally separated from the USCF tournament,

and will not disturb the quiet conditions for the chess players.
