One Move at a Time Greg Shahade

For the April edition of One Move at a Time, US Chess Senior Director of Strategic Communication Dan Lucas sits down with IM Greg Shahade, who founded the US Chess School in 2006 and which resumes classes this year in a victory for a post-covid world. He also founded the New York Masters and the U.S. Chess League, which is now known as the PRO Chess League, and is a former member of the Executive Board of US Chess.

Greg won three national scholastic championships: tying for first in both the 1993 National Junior High School Championship and the 1996 National High School Championship, and winning the 1996 United States Junior Open outright. He won the prestigious Samford Fellowship, annually awarded by the U.S. Chess Trust to the top U.S. prospect under the age of 25, in 1999.

His dad is FM Michael Shahade and his sister Jennifer is a two-time US Women’s Champion and our US Chess Women’s Program Director.


“One Move at a Time,” is a monthly US Chess podcast in which Dan Lucas, the Senior Director of Strategic Communication, talks to people who are advancing the US Chess mission statement to “Empower people, enrich lives, and enhance communities through chess.”
