CSQ 25 - XI 2016
Certainly the beginning of Germany's 'fifth' or 'foolish' season on 11-11 and the simultaneous start of the World Chess Championship in New York City are not interrelated. Apart from that, we can offer today the November issue of our KWA newsletter − CSQ 25 will be the last number of the CSQ series in the conventional form. As customary, it is available in our member section − we hope you enjoy!
