A Simultaneous Chess Exhibition with
Grandmaster Eugene Perelshteyn
to raise money for the Aleksander Wojtkiewicz Funeral Fund

Sunday, November 19th at 3:30 PM
Admission: $20 ($10 for BCC Members)

In honor of Grandmaster Aleksander Wojtkiewicz, whose untimely passing shocked the chess world earlier this year, Grandmaster Eugene Perelshteyn will face all comers in a simultaneous chess exhibition to raise money for the Aleksander Wojtkiewicz funeral fund. Don'’t miss this rare opportunity to face New England's newest grandmaster in this charity event.

Anyone who wins against the grandmaster will receive a signed copy of both of his recently published repertoire books, Openings for Black, Explained and Openings for White, Explained. For a draw with the grandmaster, choose either one of the books as a prize.

All ages welcome. Spectators welcome. Boards and sets provided. Players must move when the GM gets to their board, or use a "“pass." Players are allowed three passes. No USCF membership required.

Players fee: $20 (a $10 discount applies to BCC members.) Spectators can watch for free.

To sign up, send your admission fee to:

The Boylston Chess Club
240B Elm Street, Suite B9

Entries at the door will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so enter in advance if you can.
