Well, you can take your chances when Chess Grandmaster Larry Christiansen plays chess Outside in the LMA on Monday, June 10th from 11:30 am-1:30 pm at the Countway Courtyard.

Next week, Christiansen will bring his superb chess skills to the LMA where he will play a chess simul:  A simultaneous display is a board game exhibition (commonly chess) in which one player (typically of high rank, such as a grandmaster or dan-level player) plays multiple games at a time with a number of other players.
