A visit with my host family to the chess club was one of the most fun things I did in St Louis. It is in a hip place in the heart of most things, including the Botanical Gardens. The chess club is quite impressive. It’s across from the Hall of Fame that has the largest chess piece placed outside and giant size chess board. This club has quality decor from tables, floors to ceilings and walls with beautifully framed chess photos. I particularly noticed the classical music that was playing when I walked in. Staff were very kind and I received a tour of the building and was very lucky to be there during the US Junior Open 2015. Here are some photos and more on the Open a bit later.
