World Chess Grandmaster Visits Manchester Today


World chess grandmaster Susan Polgar will play 25 chess players at once in an exhibition today, April 13 at Manchester College. The simultaneous game begins at noon in the College Union, after the four-time World Champion presents a convocation on breaking the gender barrier in chess, and how chess can help achieve peace.

The public is invited to both events; admission is free. The convocation begins at 10 a.m. in the upper College Union. A book signing by the author of numerous books on chess, and her autobiography, Breaking Through, follows both events. read more
