18.05.2018 20:24 Chess : Sam Shankland leads the field at rejuvenated Capablanca Memorial
Cuba’s annual Capablanca Memorial, which ends on Saturday, has been staged annually with a few small breaks since 1962, and is now in its 53rd year of an evocative history. Ostensibly it honours José Raúl Capablanca, the world chess champion from 1921-27 and one of the greatest natural players of all time, but in reality it is also a tribute to Che Guevara, who away from revolutions was a keen chess fan and provided state funds for the first few lavish events in the series as well as for the 1966 Havana Olympiad, probably the best organised of all world team contests. There are some iconic images from those early Havana events. Guevara strolling around the grandmaster boards at the Habana Libre hotel, revolver in holster; Fidel Castro taking on the then world chess champion Tigran Petrosian in a mammoth outdoor simul which ended after ...
18.05.2018 20:23 On Chess : How Sports Illustrated familiarized chess for a broad audience
The U.S. and U.S. Women’s Chess Championships recently concluded at the St. Louis Chess Club. During the tournament, the Chess Club played host to a number of journalists from publications from around the world. Many of the articles resulting from these visits will become part of the World Chess Hall of Fame’s collection of periodicals related to chess history. Many of these publications are chess-centered periodicals such as Chess Life, Chess Review, American Chess Bulletin and New in Chess. However, the collection also contains many magazines that show chess’s broad appeal. Among these are general interest magazines like LIFE and Sports Illustrated, which translate the events of the game to a wider audience. Fans of chess sometimes discuss whether chess is a game, an art, a sport or some combination of the three. Since at least 1958, Sports Illustrated has ...
