MY DUBROVNIK SET IS HERE!


Took 24 days to arrive but well worth the wait! I now own the Dubrovnik 1950 Olympiad chess set that Bobby Fischer uses for his game analysis. His set is not weighted but mine is double weighted.

That makes it more a playing set that an analysis set, but still I love the carved knights and the absence of the cross for the King ( suitable for Malaysia and Indonesia). It's got a nice feel when gripping the pieces, the pawns are sturdy and sit promptly when released. Can't ask for a better set. Need to find the right sized wooden board to complete it.

Interested parties can find this at www.chessbazaar.com. They are based in India and are reputable. 

Will be featuring more of my collected Staunton pieces later.

  1. Wood sets costs too much nowadays. How much did you pay for this?
