RSVP now to enroll in this free online chess class, taught by high school chess expert and tutor, Uday.  We will meet Sundays, 2 - 3 pm, February 14 - March 21, to learn the game in six sessions.  It is recommended you attend each session, or at least the first three to get the basics.  In the first three sessions we will learn the rules, piece movement, and special moves. Classes 4-6 will be dedicated to looking at different openings, positional analysis, and going over famous grandmaster games which teach valuable skills.

Assignments to practice in between sessions will be given. Owning a chess board is not required. 

Attendees will view the class on Zoom and will join chess.com to be able to practice.  After RSVPing, I will get each registrant instructions on using and creating an account.
