Meteoric Masters of Chess: A lecture about the rise and fall of the game’s greatest players.
Some of the game’s most gifted players have had careers that were as brilliant as they were brief. They never had a chance to compete on the world stage, but their impact on Chess Culture will never be forgotten. They played the game of wisdom, they left footprints for the rest to follow, but their own journeys were cut short.
Our chess teacher is Soviet era 5-time University Champion Mikhail Geister, a student of the coach of the Soviet national team. In the US, Michael has won the West Coast championship among experts and trains amateurs and professionals alike, including national masters.
