Predict Tata and win a Rotterdam Chess SetEarlier this year a special, big 'Rotterdam Chess Set' was presented during the Rotterdam Museum Night, and this month the tabletop version came on the market. You can now win such a chess set! Schaaksite, a Dutch site for chess fans, announces a competition connected with the Tata Steel Chess Tournament in January 2011 and gives away three sets.

A first version of the large Rotterdam Chess Set was presented as early as 2005 times at a great mind games festival in the Central Library in Rotterdam. Harry Hoek, responsible for exhibitions at the Central Library in Rotterdam, is the spiritual father and creator of this design.

With support from the City of Rotterdam (incentive) and the Chess Museum Rotterdam it was made possible to develop a major new version of the Rotterdam Chess Set. The Chess Pieces Museum made it possible to develop and produce a tabletop version. Harry Hoek, Carel van der Poel and Haiko de Jong were closely involved.
