Monthly on the third Monday
The Clapton Hart 231 Lower Clapton Rd, London E5 8EG.
Format: The format will be flexible, according to who and how many turn up, but I imagine 8 player tournaments for £5 or £10 entry, mostly knockout, but possibly Swiss if there is the demand. If there aren't enough players for a tournament, then either a round robin or a chouette will take place. Please bring a board if you have one. I'll attempt to get something started at 7pm. Registration will be £2.
How to get there: Clapton is well connected by train and bus, and the pub is literally yards from the station. Trains from Liverpool Street take a mere 12 minutes, and it's also 5 minutes from Walthamstow Central (which is on the Victoria line). Trains run every 15 minutes. There is a bus stop right outside the pub, serving routes 106, 253 and 254, connecting Clapton to the tube network at Finsbury Park and Manor House. For those coming from the south, Dalston Junction is a short bus ride away (38 and 56 to Clapton Pond then a 5 minute walk).
