Join us in-person at the club on December 8th and 15th where GM Bryan Smith will deliver our December lectures in a 2-part series. Bryan was on the national champion UMBC chess team from 1999 to 2001, and earned his grandmaster title from FIDE in 2013. He is the first-ever GM from Alaska! Bryan took 1st place in the 2008/2009/2017 National Chess Congress, 2010 Philadelphia International, 2013 Ohio Chess Congress, 2013 Eastern Open, 2017/2018/2019 Pittsburgh Open, and 2021 Golden Triangle Open. Bryan will be going over his games and taking audience questions. This event will be free to club members and to the public, but a $20 donation is suggested so we can continue providing great lectures and distinguished guests next year. All proceeds go toward the Pittsburgh Chess Club 2022 Lecture Fund
