Entertaining and educational, the class will introduce you to the elegant simplicity of chess in a non-intimidating manner, so that you may overcome its confounding complexities and enjoy the game. Then, feed your quest for more skill and advanced technique as Nels shares his master level strategies and you have match time and trouble shoot moves with other players. First few weeks cover more basic skills. Next few really hone in on the skill and offer lots of open play with others. Repeat this class as many times as you like for the love of chess, keeping your skills sharp, and staying up to speed on your games. Basic chess skills required.

Nels Truelson

National Chess Master Nels Truelson has been state champion of both South Dakota where he won the title a record 13 times, and Minnesota where he was inducted into the state's Chess Hall of Fame. He has shared his passion for teaching chess many places including MN schools and summer chess camps coach. His proven method to success at chess involves your discovery of the game's fundamental question: How to make your pieces "do" more than your opponent's pieces? Here he is in an 'historical image' from 1976, playing blindfolded against seven students and a computer. How cool is that?
