After the great Brooklyn Chess Festival two weeks ago, we have another great chess event for you! This coming Sunday, Aug 24th, we are bringing a new exciting tournament to the New York chess scene- 7 rounds of blitz with time odds! The way it works is that we’re giving extra chance for lower-rated players to win by giving them more time than their higher-rated opponents will get. It is a novel idea which we hope to catch on. There are great money prizes with $400 for the winner and several class prizes given in various age groups. So, it’s this Sunday, Aug 24th at 4 at the New York Chess and Games Shop at 192 Flatbush Ave in Park Slope ( at Dean St, across the street from the Barclay’s Center). Click here for details and to register. You can’t miss it!
If you are interested in signing up your kids for an after-school chess group, I give classes at few different locations in Brooklyn several times a week. The times and locations are:
Bird River Studios , 343 Grand St, in Williamsburg, tel. (718)782-1791 . Mondays and Thursdays at 3:30

I still have a few hours available for one-on-one individual instruction at your home, if you are interested. Hope to see you and your kids at a chessboard!
If you’re interested in my classes and would like to meet me in person, or simply would like to play a few casual games, I have been organizing the Brooklyn Speed Chess meetup group on Fridays for the last few years. We meet at the Tea Lounge at Union St in Park Slope, we start at 7. Come meet me and the guys from my chess league team, you’re guaranteed to get a lot of good games.
