Brooklyn Blitz Open this Sunday!
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!

My student of few months, Gabriel Mrowka, sporting his impressive trophy for the 2nd place in the U900 section of the Bryant Park tournament- Gabriel’s score was an undefeated 3.5/4 in his second tournament ever! Congratulations! Looking forward to more tournaments, classes and chess camps this summer.
