GM Rohde on Golden Age at Marshall CC

On October 27th, at the Marshall Chess Club, grandmaster Michael Rohde will lecture to adult players on the Golden Age of Chess from 1990 to 1998. This was a time when tournaments were aplenty, FIDE still had a constant world championship system in place, and computers were best used as a place to pile chess books rather than refute them.

GM Rohde has many tournament victories to his credit. He finished equal first at the World Open in 1981 and 1989, and again at the U.S. Open in 1991 and 2007. From 1991 to 2006, Rohde authored the Game of the Month column in Chess Life magazine.

The lecture begins at 7pm and is free to club members ($10 non-members).
