St. Louis Chess and Scholastic Center: Champions Showdown November 9 - 14, 2017

A big line-up but, sadly, ALL males.  I won't be paying attention, except to mention in passing that I'm glad to see the names of some veterans like Grischuk and Topalov.  You can find more information at the Club website

It will be a nice pay-off for all players, with $60,000 going to the winner of each of four pairings and $40,000 going to the "second place" finisher of each of the four pairings, for a total prize package of $400,000. 

There will also be a grand opening reception at the World Chess Hall of Fame "Global Moves: Americans in Chess Olympiads."
