Pub Chess Toronto


 

Hi everyone, My name is Yelizaveta Orlova – I am a WCM and WNM. I used to play competitively but now I’ve taken up teaching mostly.

My friend and I love chess so we have started our own business in Toronto, Canada! If you know anyone who lives here – please let them know about us!

About Pub Chess Toronto

Learn and play chess in a social atmosphere. Pub Chess Toronto’s founders are top players in the country.

We hold teaching sessions/lectures + casual/competitive play. Currently, we are re-located at “The Madison”, which is in the heart of Annex and 2 mins walk from Spadina station. Our past location was “The Central”, Markham & Bloor.

The point of our meet up is to popularize chess. Chess is known to be a very sophisticated game but we want to show the social and fun aspect of it! Come out, drink/eat, meet new people over the chess board!

Every wednesday there will be a lecture/blitz tournament/casual play.
