About the event
Explore the Chess of the Queen’s Gambit with reigning U.S. Women’s Chess champion Irina Krush, the first American female grandmaster, and Woman Grandmaster Jennifer Shahade, the Program Director for U.S. Women’s Chess. Irina and Jen will share their chess stories, then they’ll break down the chess of selected clips from the popular Netflix series, The Queen’s Gambit. We’ll end with a Q&A with Irina and Jen. You do not need to know how to play chess in order to enjoy the event.
Before the event, we’ll send each person a special package with a chess set and a chess-themed snack package. If you want to be really cool, we’ll also send the ingredients for making the Gibson Martini that Beth and her step-mom love drinking and make it live during the program. How’s that for fun?!
