No class on April 16
The Berkeley Chess School offers a Tuesday evening chess class in
Piedmont from 5:30 to 7:00pm every week throughout the school year. The
format will be a half hour lecture by instructor Stephen Shaughnessy
followed by a USCF-rated tournament game with a time control of G25/d5
(meaning each player has 25 minutes to complete their moves plus 5 extra
seconds per move). All ages welcome, although the lectures will be
geared towards experienced players of strength 500-1500 USCF.
Stephen Shaughnessy has taught chess classes in Piedmont schools for over a
decade and has created this class to allow Piedmont residents a place to
play rated games and expand their chess skills. Players can also drop in for just the rated
games from 6-7pm for a fee of $10 per game. Prizes for each six-week
tournament will be determined by how many people participate.
