As computers and AI push the boundaries of this beautiful game, we humans sometimes need to take a step back, focusing not only on what is but also on what was. Join us as Sebastiaan Smits takes us on a journey through the history of chess and unravels its past, from its beginning to the dominance of AlphaZero.

On the speaker: Sebastiaan is a strong Dutch chess player with a classical rating of over 2100. In the 2022-2023 season, he became the official club champion of WLC.
