#1097 My New Polish Chess Set

Back in December 2003, on my second visit the Scotch Plains Chess Club, I had the pleasure of playing 3 games, with Mark Doroba (who has since passed away), on an exquisite Polish chess set and have longed for one ever since.

Well, at last month's USATE in Parsippany, after a first round loss to NM Tod Chasin, I walked over to the equipment store and was very pleased to see a similar set for sale.

The board didn't have the dark-square and border engravings that Mark's set did but the pieces were exactly the same and that was good enough for me.
