Max Illingworth is giving a lecture at MCC on "Applying Positional Chess Principles" on Wednesday 28th October, a couple of days before the Hjorth Open. All levels of chess players are welcome. This is a great opportunity to hear from one of Australia's chess professionals .

Club members free, $5 non-members.

The lecture summary from Max follows:

"I will take a particular general principle (e.g. when ahead in development, open the position), show a model game illustrating it, then move on to another general principle. I'll also include a game and a few positions at the end for the stronger end of the audience on handling situations where two of these principles are conflicting (and determining which one is more important). "
