Posted: March 24th, 2014 by Daniel Rensch

If you missed last weekend’s great event, well, shame on you! More than 85 players competed, including the best Arizona has to offer in GM Barcenilla, IM Rensch, FM Atoufi and others! We give our congratulations to the entire Katz family and we can only *hope* they will make ArizonaChess4Charity a regular thing! Visit their website and make a donation (it’s not too late).

Full results can be viewed here.

If you missed Sunday’s spectacle, there is a chance at redemption.

Chess Enthusiast and Philanthropist, Dr Norm Saba, is holding an event for charity at the Cardon Children’s Medical Center this Saturday… and guess who’s attending? GM Barcenilla AND IM Rensch! Food, fun, simuls, blindfold chess, etc, etc, etc
