The US Chess Scoop on the World Chess Hall of Fame June 5, 2011Posted by Jennifer in : art,chess , trackback
I’m happy to announce that I’ve been elected to the board of directors for the World Chess Hall of Fame, a wonderful institution that is moving from Miami to the locus of American chess, Saint Louis. But even before the doors open on September 9th, the World Chess Hall of Fame has partnered with HBO and Moxie Firecracker Productions to co-host Bobby Fischer Against the World events in Park City Utah, New York and Saint Louis. The movie, directed by Liz Garbus, kicks off the HBO Documentaries series on June 6th. I posted a piece on CLO including photos by Suzy Gorman about the Saint Louis event. Watch a US Chess Scoop video on the New York premiere, which featured a star-studded blitz tournament in Bryant Park. Stay posted on the World Chess Hall of Fame on facebook and twitter.
