Greg Hlushko

Greg Hlushko and Bruce Aird are going through their opening moves trying to gain an early advantage. It is fitting that they are playing on an antique chess set, since chess has a history going back to the Middle Ages. The rules have gradually changed until the 19th century, when they were finally set to the way the game is now played.

The club meets every Monday at 2 p.m. in the Ocotillo Room in the SaddleBrooke TWO MountainView clubhouse and every Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. in the Bobcat Room in the lower level of the SaddleBrooke One clubhouse.

It is a game where you can learn the rules in about an hour or so, but you can spend a lifetime learning new tactics and improving your strategy. It’s a game that can help keep your mind sharp.

The Chess Club has players of various experience levels, and we play in a casual, friendly environment for fun. Come by and check it out. It’s cool inside!
