CHESS CLUB AND SCHOLASTIC CENTER OF SAINT LOUIS ADDS
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 9, 2009 -- The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis has hired Grandmaster (GM) Ben Finegold as its first GM-in-residence. As GM-in-residence, Finegold will give weekly lectures, provide lessons to members and others, teach summer camps and work with the club’s scholastic program.
Finegold is expected to start shortly after New Year’s. The Detroit native, who now lives in Ann Arbor, Mich., will move to St. Louis to work at the club full time.
I really enjoyed Ben's commentary during the US women's championship and applaud the St Louis Chess Club on their nonstop good taste.
