I'm happy to announce that International Grandmaster and 3-time US Champion Larry Christiansen will be providing commentary and analysis during the first round of the BCF Master Challenge.

The first round will take place tomorrow, Saturday, at 10:00 AM.  Please come and listen to free analysis by one of strongest players in the country!

Also, the BCF Master Challenge and Summer Open are taking place in Davis Square, Somerville at the same time as a fun festival called Artbeat

According to the official website Artbeat is "one of the area's largest and most innovative arts festivals, complete with two stages of music with over a dozen bands, dance troupes, 75 craft vendors, food and migration-themed activities."

If you're not playing in the Summer Open, you might consider coming to watch some of the Master Challenge games, and then enjoy Artbeat.  What a great Saturday!

Please do note that parts of Davis Square will be closed to traffic for the festival.  You can still park, but you might need to find a spot a few blocks away.  Also, you should consider taking public transportation if possible.  One option is to drive to Alewife T station, park your call in their all-day lot, and take the train one stop to Davis.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
