Does anyone know what sets are being used in the current Sinquefield Cup? It look like an Andeluisan set, but then again not quite. Thanks.
These pieces were specially designed for this event by Frank Camaratta on behalf of HoS - the Sinquefield set. I believe only 22 sets were made, but there's a possibility that HoS might eventually sell them...
Thanks Frank. I was wondering if they were HOS pieces. Looking at the HOS website, they look very similar to the Imperial Collector sets.
It's a HOS Imperial Collecter with DGT and weighted. Here is a link about it.
Wow bronco, you know it all, doncha ;)
HA! I just have a thing for chess sets. Someday I might even buy a nice set
Well, that settles it then. Thanks Bronco for the link.
Looks like a Limited Edition of this set (not DGT-enabled) is now available for Preorder on the HoS site...
Frank... for the price which I could never afford in the first place. I would go with a Chavet set or a Dobrovnik set. These are less expensive & a lot better looking sets IMHO.
If your aesthetic is informed by the great old Jaques sets, you'll probably prefer the hos offering.
It's painfully ironic that they made Gata pose boxing style...
I think the set is overpriced. For that kind of money, you can get a really nice pre-1900 Jaques...
Thats my point.. I think the price is outrageous ! Beter pieces can be had for far less money IMO.
I can't see paying that much for a modern set in anything but exceptional materials.
Better to pick out a historic Jaques in nice condition, in my eyes.
That's a lot of bones for a set even with the autographs.
I agree for $1300 you can still get a 19th C Jaques set in good condition.
