Chess blitz and lessons social event with FIDE Master Luke Wong

Needs a location

FIDE Master Luke Wong typically discusses openings, positional chess, endings, etc. each Wednesday evening. It's free to everyone and he keeps it informal. We do ask that you buy something there since we're using space within Starbucks and have a win-win viewpoint. Luke tries to cover topics the other players are interested in, as he wants to see them improve. Afterwards, we adjourn to a local restaurant for food, drinks, and blitz. Attendee ELO typically range from 1,000—2,000. If anyone is interested, you're welcome to join us.
