Bacoor Chess Club

City of Bacoor in Cavite, the city that gave us GM Wesley So, IM Ino Sadorra and CM Vince Angelo Medina.

What else can you ask for?

Last night I stopped by and watched a few games in the playing area of Bacoor Chess Club. The play area is located within the vicinity of the intersection of Aguinaldo highway, Coastal Road and Daang Hari. Landmarks are easy to find try this: St Dominic Hospital, Talaba-Bacoor Police Station and Tropical Hut Hamburger.

Let me describe the place.

It's a makeshift play area and it fronts the dilapidated building that has a big advertising billboard on top of it. Chairs, tables, chess boards and clocks are supplied by the store owner and it is interesting to watch how the club members satisfy their addiction. The members convene every night at around 5 and from what I've heard last night, a pair had a record of 30 hours non-stop play.

Who runs the club? Heck I don't know.

One thing is for sure, they have players ready to play with anyone.

The only active chess club in the Province of Cavite is Bacoor Chess Club.

No politics, no geniuses, just chess!
