Chess simul with USCF Expert Craig LaSalle. Limited to 30 participants. $5 participation fee. Bring a set. No fee for spectators. Participants will be arranged in a circuit, and Mr. Lasalle will make his moves one board at a time, proceeding through the circuit format. Mr. Lasalle plays White on all boards. Participants wait until Mr. LaSalle comes to their board, then immediately make their move for him to see. Participants will be given 3 tokens that they can use to get Mr. LaSalle to ‘pass’ their board, allowing the participant more time to think about their move as Mr. LaSalle makes another round through the circuit. We are thrilled to have a strong player for this simul! Here is a brief biography for Mr. LaSalle: Craig LaSalle is a professional chess coach and a United States Chess Federation expert with a current rating of 2123. He has been been studying chess since he was fifteen years old, and has won city championships in Springfield Missouri, Rochester New York, and Austin Texas. For more than a decade he has focused most of his chess energy on coaching and currently is the head chess coach for the award winning Laurel Mountain Elementary chess team in Austin.
