The ritziest chess club in the world?

I got the opportunity to stop by the Saint Louis Chess Club a couple of weeks ago.

I had heard a lot about this club and had seen several pictures, but one has to be there to really appreciate it.

The club will host the 2009 US Championship

Tony Rich - Executive Director


  1. Wonderfull location. But i espected woden boards and pieces on the tables.

  2. I am not sure what the ratio is but they do have wooden boards (some that transmit moves automatically)

    I added another picture with some of the wooden boards.

  3. great..i am member of this club! in the st.louis metro championship they had few games on the automatic relaying DGT boards.
