Come let us dream


Come let us dream. What is the perfect tournament experience? A well lit, air cooled to just the right degree hall that is truly clean and noise free. Seats cushioned to comfort but not too relaxing to make one sleep. Shiny glass tables with silver legs. Seating arrangement comfortable for walking around.

This is just the hall and its seats. What of the provided chessboard and clocks?

The latest mahogany board with weighted pieces accompanied by easy touch

DGT clocks.

Should we continue dreaming or we wake up at this point? There are more experiences in this dream but for the sake of the realists lets wake up.
