Singapore Mall Chess

A nice story from Singapore about an after work chess club which has succeeded in bringing more players into the game. The organiser is Bradley Loh, who is well known on the Sydney chess circuit, having been an active tournament player before moving to Singapore 2 years ago.
While not quite the same as say Street Chess in Canberra (which is competition focussed), it seems to fulfil a similar need, providing a casual place to drop into if the mood takes you.  As the article states, this also helps introduce new players to the game, in a less competitive manner, and bring lapsed players back into the fold.
