World Open Magic begins June  28th!

Each year, approximately 1000 chess players from around the World Open travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for America's premier Open tournament. What makes this tournament special are not only the excellent conditions and carnival atmosphere, but the possibility that there will be some magical event that will occur. In addition, it is good see the foreign players and the emergence of  young stars born at this tournament.

In terms of players of African descent, the World Open has become somewhat of a reunion and a place to renew acquaintances. This positive atmosphere lends itself to some inspiring play and below are several games from past World Open events that demonstrate the magical tone. Enjoy!!

World Open Magic!
