Malcolm X Memorial chess tournament in Brooklyn, New York!

This report is from Bob Ali, Secretary of Kingsman Chess Club.

In the land of the Headhunters, New York City, some of the top amateur players will gather at the new chess venue The Oxford Gambit for the Malcolm X Memorial Tourney, a long-standing fixture at the Kingsmen Chess Club. In the past several years lack of a site has preempted the Malcolm X, but Brothers Steve Colding and Regeberto Sabio have graciously opened the space for the Kingsmen to hold the first of what we hope will be a string of strong amateur events. First round is September 21 and will go on every Friday for five rounds. On October 19th, there will be a free book raffle for members of the event who do not win a trophy. So in effect, you can't lose. All the participants will get a trophy or a book courtesy of the members of the KCC. Entry fee is $20 for adults and $15 for juniors under eighteen years old. Of course the tourney will be USCF rated and refreshments will be available. PLEASE NOTE, due to space limitations only the first thirty paid entrants will be able to play. So contact BOB ALI<SECRETARY/TD to register at

Play well,

Bob Ali
