In the fourth “Drum Beat” segment (May 7th), we present an extended issue highlighting the U.S. Championship, the World Championship and upcoming tournaments. The latest news on The Chess Drum include the national championships of IS-318 (Brooklyn) in both the High School and Junior High and also a historic visit by Magnus Carlsen. The team is currently the subject of a documentary titled, “Brooklyn Castle”. There are other stories covered such as the newly-launched ACE magazine out of Trinidad. It is a vehicle for highlighting news in the Caribbean region.
We visit a number of other sites including “The Full English Breakfast” and checked the summer calendar of U.S. tournaments. There are several strong tournaments on tap. We browse Twitter and get the latest scoops! On Facebook, we visit a couple of groups to get morsels not found on main websites. Facebook and Twitter seem to be the quickest way to get information out.
Check out the entire segment below (26:36 minutes). Enjoy!!
