Chess queen to St. Louis

Chess queen to St. Louis
February 4, 2012 By Mike Lear

St. Louis is already a chess Mecca, and it is about to add to that reputation.

Four-time world chess champion Susan Polgar is bringing her Institute for Chess Excellence from Texas Tech to Webster University, and that includes her 2011 collegiate championship team.

Next year’s Webster team will boast eight grandmasters; a collegiate first.

St. Louis is already home to the U.S. Chess Championships, the country’s top rated player and the World Chess Hall of Fame.
