All the King's Men

All the King's Men chess store and club is featured in an article from the Gloucester County Times today titled "Pitman chess store owner has all the right moves." The article talks about how owner Stephen Dick turned an online store into a bricks and mortar chess and games emporium. This is definitely a place to visit this summer (see map), perhaps in conjunction with playing in the 2nd Annual Greater Pitman Open Chess Championship, a 4-Round Game-60 Swiss tournament on August 15th, directed by Dick. According to Susan Polgar, among those confirmed to play in the Grand Prix event are GM-elect Alex Lenderman, GM Michael Rohde, IM Bryan Smith, NM Dr. Leroy Dubeck and "likely, but not confirmed players" IM Dean Ippolito, IM Kirill Kuderinov, FM Boris Privman, and FM Tommy Bartel. Lenderman will play a simul Friday, August 14th at 7:30 p.m. at All the King's Men, with an entry fee of $20 and prizes of $50 for a win and $25 for a draw.
