GM Sergei Shipov is the top seed in the Sydney International Open to be held in Parramatta after Easter. He has been in the top 100 players in the world list for many years and still has a world rank of 163. As a comparison Australia’s 2 GM’s have world ranks of 525 and 1,196 respectively.
He is also a master Blitz player and believes Blitz is very democratic, as it allows a more level playing field. He studied Physics at University and turned professional after gaining an Engineering degree.
This is a fantastic opportunity for Canberra players to attend a short lecture and then pit their skills against him!
