Today around the nation chess players and fans are celebrating National Chess Day! The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis will be hosting a tournament this weekend to celebrate along with many other clubs around the country. In addition, Pawn Sacrifice is still showing in theaters so moviegoers can also get their fix of chess today! To celebrate National Chess Day I am happy to share this absolutely hilarious meeting between World Champion Bobby Fischer and Bob Hope!
