Julieta Martinez

I've been playing chess for over 15 years, and I have never been in more in love with the game. I'll give a quick chess 101 introduction starting from basic and special rules, and building up to openings, middle game tactics and classical endgames. I'll talk a bit about chess as an art; i.e., problem composition, and you'll get to solve the famous Reti problem! Finally, I'll take a look at the current rating system, top (human and non-human) players, and a few remarks about diversity in chess.
