“The Queen’s Gambit chess event was a lovely experience. It was a real treat to learn chess lessons from such masters of the game, and an absolute thrill to go head-to-head against an elite grandmaster in the tournament. (It was definitely the most fun I’ve ever had while losing a game.) GetSomeClass provides unique, highly enjoyable virtual experiences.”

Event Leaders

Irina Krush

Grandmaster Irina Krush is awesome. She is an eight-time U.S. Women’s Chess Champion and the current reigning champion. Irina has played for the U.S. national team in the Women’s Chess Olympiad since 1998, and helped lead the team to a silver medal in 2004 and a bronze metal in 2008. She won her first championship in 1998 at the ripe old age of 14 and is the first American woman to become a grandmaster. Irina is fun, personable, entertaining, down-to-earth, and a pleasure to learn the game of chess from.


Jen Shahade

Jennifer Shahade is a rock star and renaissance woman. Jen is a two-time U.S. Women’s Chess Champion, the Woman’s Program Director of U.S. Chess, a poker player and poker championship winner, and an author of three books, with more to come. When she’s not doing all those things, she finds time to host a chess podcast called Ladies’ Knight and the GRID poker podcast. We’re lucky to have her on board and your people will have an awesome time with her.
