We have a special guest coming to our chess club Friday May 2nd. It will be located at our main club on 4825 S Lemay ave. It is a church called council tree we rent out a room from.
Timur will be giving a simul where he plays all of the participants a game of chess at the same time as well as giving a short lesson. He will be open for quesitons and autographs. Timur is the 2nd highest rated player in America is an international Grandmaster and we are lucky to have him stop by for a short while on his way through Colorado. The event costs only $20. It will go from 5pm-8pmish (maybe a little later for some players). Timur is known for his skill at blindfold chess and can play up to 50 games at once without looking at any of the boards. He will be trying to break the world record for blindfold in the near future.
So come have a good time with chess friends and play one of the world renown chess players. Everyone is welcome! No one is expected top beat so don’t feel bad no matter how good you are at chess. This will be a great experience and you can always say you played a famous Grandmaster! Please emial email@example.com with any quesitons and to reserve a spot. Payment can be made on site.
