We’re just a few weeks away from the start of the 2021 U.S. Open and US Chess has announced that legendary World Champion GM Anatoly Karpov will be in attendance on August 4th for a lecture, Q & A session, and book signing. Here is the official release info from the US Chess Federation:
Mr. Karpov will deliver a lecture, to be followed by a question-and-answer period. Then, Mr. Karpov will appear at a book signing in the US Open bookstore. He’ll be joined there by a former World Junior Champion, GM Maxim Dlugy! This special event is happening thanks to the combined generosity of the New Jersey State Chess Federation, Chess Max Academy, and US Chess Sales. US Chess thanks all of these partners for helping to provide our attendees with this great visit!
According to US Chess, the Crowne Plaza, which is hosting the event, is almost out of rooms but the federation has secured local hotels at the same discount rate. For details, visit the official website for the 2021 US Open.
