Lapshun Lectures Tonight at Marshall CC

The Marshall Chess Club presents free Tuesday chess classes for adult players [$10 for non-members]. The series is based on The Mammoth Book of The World’s Greatest Chess Games.

Studying these masterpieces is the time-tested and best way to improve your game. This week’s class, July 7th at 7:30pm, is being taught by international master Yury Lapshun.

Lapshun is a three-time Marshall Chess Club champion, as well as co-author with Nick Conticello of the landmark book 7 Ways to Smash the Sicilian.

The two games being analyzed are Capablanca - Marshall, New York 1918 and Adams - Torre, New Orleans 1920.
