Instructor: Dennis Pence
Chess is a board game, similar to checkers (but much more fun), and is for everyone. It is a great game to improve your mind! The Endwright Center will be offering several levels of learning from “how to play” classes for those who may not be familiar with rules and how to play basic moves; to more advanced classes for the occasional player, to the more serious players. Don’t have time for a full game? Keep in mind we will have continued games, just like the World Chess.
Dennis will have puzzles, tactics and strategies as well as checkmate problems to solve for prizes and accolades. If you feel really challenged, blindfold games where you makes moves without seeing the board! How far can you last?
About the instructor: Dennis Pence played “first board” at the RCA chess Club in the 1970’s. He loves chess strategies and tactics and is always learning. Playing opponents on Chess.com, he has gotten to know people from all over the world, and would like to meet and learn from you too!
