Our chessboard

@The passed pawn Inn+ My father had an African friend when I was a kid, I think his name as Shaikh, like the title. I am not sure about this, but I believe the chessboard was made by Shaikh's brother. I think it was a gift, but I will have to ask my dad - maybe he bought it. He passed it on to my youngest a couple of years ago. It is made of marble, yet the pieces are soft to the touch. I love this board. :heart:

A big fan of Opensource amongst the chess top players! (or was it top chess players?... And they say English is easy...)

Top chess players.

And no one says English is easy. Except maybe Germans. Those punks always speak English better than I do.

@Haakon Meland Eriksen (Parlementum) did you see it live? I find this kind of chess amazing... I cannot understand how they ca think that fast. It's somehow depressing too... :P

I've been playing on lichess lately 10+0, losing a lot. I still need much more time not to blunder every move :(

No, I did not. I do to. :-)
