The Phoenix Rises (We’re Moving)

Phoenix cover

As many of you know, the Suffern Chess Club has gone through a number of changes over the years. The club has changed locations from time to time in order to secure a suitable and affordable location to play rated tournament games.

We’ve had a great run of over seven years at our Suffern location. However, rising fees for our playing space have forced us to re-invent ourselves once again.

So, starting on Monday, March 30, 2015 we will officially merge with the Bergen Chess Mates and will meet at the United Methodist Church on 100 Dayton Street in Ridgewood, NJ. You can find a street map on the Directions page of this website, or can visit the official Bergen Chess Mates website instead by clicking this link.

The Suffern Chess Club website will remain active, so stay tuned for additional posts on the wacky world of chess.

On another note, while researching Phoenix imagery for this post, we came across the above book by David Rudel which examines the Phoenix Attack variation of the Colle system. To learn more about this approach, click the attached link to the book listing on
