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 extraseconds 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 toplay 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.
