Tournament of semi-champions
Now's your chance to test those Chess skills you've been bragging about for years. Monday, at 7:00 p.m., the Chess Club in the Hopkins Center for the Arts is letting anyone challenge Russian grandmasters Valerij Filippov and Peter Kiriakov for $10. The two greatest players in the world (Ok, the 72nd and 203rd greatest, respectively) will be competing with players simultaneously. Or, if you really think you have mad Chess skills, you could always try to get into the HB Global Chess Challenge (May 18-22) at the Minneapolis Convention Center. It's your move.
