    Yeah, what’s a matter with you Brits? I grew up playing chess on Santa Monica Beach, on the boardwalk near the pier. Where Najdorf took on all comers (during the ’66 Piatagorsky Cup), Walter Browne hustled, and a vast assortment of madmen, surfers, retired wrestlers and , yes, even serious chess players, spent long afternoons blaming their blunders on bikinis.

    I might also mention the time way back in 1979 I ended up near 75th and Broadway in Manhattan at one in the morning watching GM Roman Dzindzihashvili giving super-strong IM Norman Weinstein 1 to 5 minute odds at blitz, all the time downing shots and gazing off in the distance .. well, at least as far as the waitress ..

    It’s mostly too cold for street chess in the UK… http://CasualChess.Org operates all year round, indoors… 🙂
