    Recent games as well as classic games were analyzed with audience participation. GM Kavalek included the story of Madame de Remusat & the legendary Tal. A very worthwhile lecture with lots of encouragement for new & experienced players.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
