A Taste of Chess

Illinois’s Warren Chess Scholars, including Ray School’s Phillip Parker-Turner and the state’s other top chess kids, held forth today in Grant Park and showed the Taste of Chicago crowd how the game is played. Thanks to chess mom and program chair Andi Rosen and all the kids who shared their chess skills with the people of Chicago.
