    Very nice initiative, thanks! First come first serve basis for those who register I presume? I’ll have a look to see whether I can make it.

    Everyone will be welcome. I have yet to run out of spaces in Edinburgh; the club is spacey.

    Is there a minimum rating one should have for this?

    I would recommend 1500+. But some things will seem quite advanced under 2000.

    Chessbooks in Edinburgh

    Last week I visited Edinburgh. In South Bridge is Blackwell’s Bookstore located. It’s a large store. I looked for chess books … Only three books from Batsford have been there. Very disappointing.

    Thanks to Jacob for training us, to the organisers who made it possible to have this seminar (idea, venue and most probably some funding do not simply fall from the sky) and the other participants for sharing their thoughts. I had a wonderful chess weekend in Edinburgh.
