The Thursday Morning game has restarted. Starting at 10AM, most sessions begin with a 30-minute lesson taught by Ken Llacera. The lessons build on those taught to the 99ers over the last two years; see the complete list here. Players with 75+ masterpoints will benefit from the lessons.
The game generally consists of 24 boards or less as the target is to wrap up at approximately 2:15P. The lesson and game is $10. You are welcome to just come for the game for $8. If you can only make the lesson, it is $5. There will be a short lunch break but you must bring your own lunch.
