Tomorrow (Friday July 31), I am giving a fundraising seminar for the benefit of the Chess.com BLM Club (https://www.chess.com/club/the-black-lives-matter-chess-club/join).
The topic is general chess improvement - it will mostly be by questions from the attendees. Anyone from anywhere is invited to attend. Attendees are also offered a 3 month Internet Chess Club membership (just give Dan your handle - if you don't have one, go to www.chessclub.com and sign up for a free one-month trial).
The donation link is https://www.gofundme.com/f/international-black-lives-matter-chess-fundraiser
Time: Jul 31, 2020 01:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada) - time approximately 1 hour

This posting is to announce my third "Free Lesson" contest. The contest marks the 1st anniversary of my initial Youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6Bh6StWvvs, which was posted on July 5, 2019 (it's been an eventful year!).
The contest is open to any subscriber to my youtube channel (www.youtube.com/c/danheismanchess). Entrants should email me listing their Top 3 favorites of my videos. Of those entrants received by the end of the day July 5, two random selections will be notified to win a free lesson each. Pass the word please. 😎
