More prototyping

In talks with city authorities to set up permanent chess tables on 18 locations in Ljubljana. A very low budget project.

There is no tradition of public areas for chessplayers in Slovenia. We aim to change that.

The Love for Wood

A lovely Dutch chess documentary. Subtitles available on YouTube.

Interesting insight into gradmaster thought. Donner, Timman & friends talking interesting stuff. Not an ordinary docu.

Chessplayer's Creed

This is my chessboard. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My chessboard is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My chessboard, without me, is useless. Without my chessboard, I am useless. I must move on my chessboard true. I must move straighter than my enemy who is trying to defeat me. I must defeat him before he defeats me. I will...
My chessboard and I are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is won and there is no enemy.
