For those of you beginners who have wanted to join the group, but felt you knew too little about chess, I am going to have a Beginners Group meeting on Thursday, September 6th @ the STARBUCKS near the Navy Archives Metro. Keep my phone # handy. If the Starbucks gets too full we may have to pick an alternate location.
If the response is good, I'll try to do this about once a week.
Whether you're a pure beginner, or would like some lessons to improve your game, I'm willing to teach and help all.
To start, we will go over the rules of chess including some of the rare rules like en passant, a short 5-10 minute theory of playing, then we'll break out into games. I'll keep an eye on the games and provide commentary from time to time, and analysis at the end.
Thursday, September 6th
GATHER from 5:45 pm
START @ 6:15 pm
325 Seventh Street NW
Washington, DC 20005
