A new Black  chess experience. . . The MasterMinds of Philadelphia!

Black chess players have excelled in the Philadelphia area for decades. Since the days when Frederick Douglass and Vaux high school were busy winning championships, and the late
NM Wilbert Paige became a legend, chess has thrived. Having produced many National Masters of note, Philly will have a new breeding ground for Black chess talent. The new MasterMinds Chess Club hopes to strengthen the activity of local players by offering a venue for club play, tournament competitions and fellowship. NM Elvin Wilson and Ernest Moore have been the forces behind the organization of the club's first tournament. This five-round "action" tournament (entire game played in 30 minutes) will be held on Saturday, August 4th at Temple University's Anderson Hall.  There will be cash prizes based on 50 entrants. For more details you can view the flyer below.
