EVENT: GM Christiansen will speak for one hour about classical double e-pawn gambits, including some time discussing the Benko gambit.

Thus, the students will have an opportunity to practice against a GM some of the ideas learned during the seminar. If time permits, GM Christiansen will review the most interesting simul games.
