Matt Slomski, USCF Master.  Rating 2070.

This lecture will include Q&A to willing participants from Chess Master Matt Slomski.  
Here is how that will be accomplished: 
In this lecture, Matt will request that those interested in being asked questions by Matt fill out a short questionnaire with your name and chess rating.  During the lecture, Matt may call upon only those people that are willing to respond to questions.  Matt will tailor the questions to willing participants based on their chess rating (with questions being more challenging for higher rated participants). If the participant has no chess rating, then beginner, intermediate or expert can be noted on the questionnaire. Please note that everyone is welcome and participation in questions from the lecturer Matt Slomski is optional.  Thank you for your interest, and we hope to see you at the lecture.

Update Jan. 15, 2018:
The blog editor has asked Matt to provide a short summary about his chess life.  
This is what Matt would like to share with everyone:

"I always enjoy having someone of greater strength at the chess center to play against. The biggest help was playing over 70 rated games with Igor Nikolayev which was very educational for me as well as increase my rating every time I managed a draw or even a win. The chess center today has this same glorious feeling!"
