Weasel Lesson

This week's issue of CSCN deals with how to get FREE chess lessons!


If you are not doing anything tonight, the CSCC is proud to host the newest chess lecturer, Brian Rountree, at 7pm.  There is no charge for the event, and Brian will be signing autographs and taking picture afterwards.  He will be discussing the Evans Gambit, and we will hold a Thematic, Swiss tournament (unrated) after the talk to test out all his wisdom.  All are welcome.

This week's position comes from my list of upsets.  It is white to move.
