Steve Stoyko Semi-Slav Lecture
FM Steve Stoyko will lecture on the Semi-Slav Variation of the Queen's Gambit Declined on Thursday, March 14th, beginning at 8:15 pm at the Kenilworth Chess Club. This will be the first of two parts, the second of which will be delivered on March 28th. Members of the club pay only $5 for both lectures; non-members $5 for each.

More serious students might want to get Vigorito's Play the Semi-Slav.
Steve has given a number of formal and informal lectures at the club over the years, including on the King's Indian, Lasker's Defense, and the French. Among those I have written up are the following:
