Some of you have written in and asked for a place to play informal chess. Well we have one special place in Ipoh where chess enthusiasts meet for their daily dose of chess and tea tarik from about 5.30pm onwards. There you will find players of many skill levels, including former and current state players. That used to be about the only place to practise chess during the dark days when there were very very few tournaments in Perak.
It's along Jalan Gopeng, opp. Hillcity (called Pusat Limau Bali, selling pomeloes). It's the corner warong as you drive in. Gerai no.1
So go along when you get the chess itch. All are welcome.
