Chess City of the Year - Louisville, Kentucky

Photo was taken this past November at the Susan Polgar Foundation World Open held at the Brown Hotel in Louisville. Pictured are, l. to r., Susan Polgar, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, Tony Perugini, Frank Niro and Daro Mott.

Congratulations to the chess community of Louisville, KY, for being named "chess city of the year" by US Chess. Also to Larry Bell for his Outstanding Career Achievement Award. Very well deserved! I anticipate that Daro Mott or Ryan Velez will let Mayor Fischer know. The formal recognition will be at the awards luncheon in Indianapolis during the 2016 US Open in August.

The official US Chess announcement is located here.
