May 18th- Denys Shmelov Lecture at the Boylston

The Boylston Chess Club Presents
The 2011 Master Lecture Series

Wednesday, May 18th, 7PM
Senior Master Denys Shmelov
“Prophylaxis in Chess”

Senior Master Denys Shmelov is one of the strongest players in the area, winning the Massachusetts State title in 2008. His 2500+ rating puts him safely in the top 100 ranked players in the United States. He is also a regular and former all-star on the Boston Blitz, and he recently earned a GM-norm at the 2011 Berkeley International. His lecture will cover the important topic of prophylaxis, providing examples of quiet defensive moves that clamp down on the opponent’s counterplay before pressing a more ambitious attack.

A simultaneous exhibition will promptly follow the lecture, (at least 6 players).

ADMISSION: Lecture: FREE for Boylston members, $10.00 for non-members.
