Chess Webinars

At the most recent Northwest Chess board meeting, we decided to do some things to add value for NWC subscribers. Free chess webinars? Check!

Of course we’re talking about on-line events, since our ability to hold in-person meetings is severely constrained at the moment. Can you say… Zoom?

Mondays in May we’ll have webinars from 5:00-6:00 PM, PDT. On 4 May, Chouchanik Airapetian will have a session aimed at kids (wear your PJs and bring your favorite plush friend!), subject “How to choose the right move in the middle game.” Josh Sinanan will host on 11 May, talking about how to play against higher-rated opponents; closing out the May series on 18 May is Idaho’s Alex Machin, taking a player’s perspective on blunders and missed opportunities.

These are all free if you are a NWC subscriber, or $10 if you’re not. Sign up in advance at the online registration portal. You can also view the flyer directly at

Look for more webinar content aimed at NWC subscribers coming in June, too, and watch for ads conveniently located right in the pages of your monthly Northwest Chess magazine.
