Chess Life May, 2008
Great Cover on the May, 2008 edition of Chess Life magazine, which was in the mail when I got home this evening. The photo, by Jeff Weiss, is a beauty, featuring Jennie Liu, Anna Matlin, Eve Zhurbinskiy and Alena Kats, who competed in the U.S. Amateur Team East event in February. I love the name of the team: "Real Gentlemen Would Resign." So true, so true... The oldest (I use that word advisedly) player on that team is 14! I hope we're seeing the future of American chess in these young femmes and that they play for a long long long time!
