Check-Mate: Webster’s Chess Club Meets Chess Grand Master

Webster’s newly formed Chess Club met with chess grand master Susan Polgar, the head of Webster’s chess program at SPICE  (the Susan Polgar Institute for Chess and Excellence) located at the main campus in St. Louis.

After testing his skills against Ms. Polgar, president of the Webster Vienna Chess Club, Evgenii Tilipman said, “Playing a chess grand master was just like playing anyone else… except I knew that I was going to lose, and I had to stall my defeat for as long as possible.”

The meeting was very encouraging for all club participates from beginner to advance. The students left with an even greater motivation to play.

We would like to thank Ms. Polgar for taking the time to give our budding chess enthusiasts tips for success.
