Small messenger-bag-sized plastic chess set and board

Details

The board is about 35cm square, individual squares 4cm and King height 7cm+ (3").
I find it ideal for a laptop bag or briefcase which is usually too small for a standard set folding board with 5cm squares and a 3½" King.
I got it from my esteemed colleague and friend Tim Onions: [OnionsChess http://onionschess.co.uk/]

Chess Quotes

" It is often supposed that, apart from their 'extraordinary powers of memory', expert players have phenomenal powers of calculation. The beginner believes that experts can calculate dozens of moves ahead and he will lose to them only because he cannot calculate ahead so far. Yet this is utter nonsense. From my own experience I can say that grandmasters do not do an inordinate amount of calculating. Tests (notably de Groot's experiments) supports me in this claim.
