Join our "Black Coffee Chess Friends Group" in FACEBOOK (if you're already a playing member in our club).

Introduction * Esittely:

We have got a group of international chess friends, who want to play friendly chess games and tournaments together. The individual games (and tournaments) may be played in many different ways, but mainly these days we play in Internet's various free chess servers. All our games and tournaments are FREE of all costs - no official levels involved - just for fun among friends. Chess is an educational hobby. This website starts from games and tournaments started after 1st October, 2016. We call our group of chess friends as Black Coffee Chess Friends".

Vuosikymmenten varrella on kehittynyt suurehko joukko kansainvälisiä shakkiystäviä, jotka omien mahdollisten virallistenkin shakkiturnauksiensa ohessa ovat halunneet yhdessä pelailla kaveripiirissä epävirallisia shakkiturnauksia ja yksittäisiä ystävyyspelejä. Pelejä pelattiin alkuaikoina klassiseen kirjashakkityyliin postikorteilla, mutta aikojen myötä (postimaksujen hinnoittelu tappoi sen pelimuodon jo kauan sitten) ollaan siirrytty sähköpostiviestien kautta lähes kokonaan Internetin erilaisiin (ilmaisiin) shakkiserveripalveluihin. Myös Facebookin kautta on shakkipelejä pelattu. Tällä nettisivulla seuranta alkaa peleistä ja turnauksista, jotka on aloittu 1.10.2016 jälkeen. Kutsumme shakkiyhteisöämme nimellä "Black Coffee Chess Friends" ~ mustaa kahvia ja shakkia mukavien kaverien kanssa.
