Next Tournament


With the historical success of the East High Dark Knights Chess Team winning their second consecutive National High School Championship Team Trophy at the 2011 USCF National High School Championships in Nashville TN, along with their opportunity to meet the only African American GrandMaster, Maurice Ashley. As National Master, Barry Davis and I were reflecting on what we had experienced in Nashville, TN, the next thing would be to honor others who help develop chess in Buffalo. William Zachary was also known as the "Godfather of Chess", had established the "Chess House" in Buffalo, NY, encouraged and inspired other african - american males to take up and learn the royal game of chess.
