Introduction to Chess: Free In-Person Class for MI Members - Every Wednesday September 7 through October 26.
with MI Chess Room Coordinator Paul Whitehead

This event will be conducted in-person.

Beginner or intermediate player, join us for an 8-week course and learn the fundamentals of the Royal Game with MI Chess Room Coordinator, FIDE Master Paul Whitehead. From the basics: how the pieces move and capture, castling and en-passant; to more advanced strategy: checkmating patterns, how to think in the openings, middle-game strategy, and what to do in the endgame. The goal of the class is to open up a new world of fun and joy through the magic and beauty of chess!
