Congratulations Champions!

January 10, 2013 More

My congratulations to Kayden Troff and Sam Sevian for their gold medals at the World Youth Championship in Maribor, Slovenia in November. Both Kayden and Sam are part of the program “Young Stars”, created in partnership with the Kasparov Chess Foundation and the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis to promote chess success in the United States. Coincidentally, I was on hand in Maribor to present them with their medals! [Full report and links at the US Chess website here.]
