Smart Moves! In this two-day workshop led by Florian Helff, president of the University of Oklahoma Chess Team & Club, players will learn how to put their tactics knowledge to use as part of an overall strategy, and to position their pieces where they’re the strongest so they can make the most of every move. This workshop is ideal for Section II players who are eager to keep moving up!
