Emil Sutovsky Lecture in Edinburgh Chess Club Tuesday 20th November 19:30

Grandmaster Emil Sutovsky from Israel is visiting Edinburgh on the 20th November in connection with his new job as FIDE General Director. Quality Chess has managed to talk him into giving a small lecture on chess, as we thought it would be sad if such a great player came to Scotland without talking actual chess.

The lecture is held in Edinburgh Chess Club, Alva Street 1 at 19.30 and will last around two hours. Free entry.

Sutovsky has an entertaining playing style and has past successes such as World Junior Champion 1996, European Champion 2011 and an individual gold medal and a team silver medal in the 2010 Olympiad. Recently Sutovsky has mixed playing professionally with the presidency of the Association of Chess Professionals.

Emil will be joined by newly elected FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich, who we will try to manipulate into giving a 5-10 minute opening chat about his goals for the next four years.
