Grandmaster Larry Evans

Hi Everyone,

It is sad to know that Grandmaster and chess journalist Larry Evans passed away on Monday, November 15th at Washoe Hospital in Reno, Nevada (USA).

Larry Evans was born in Manhattan on March 22, 1932. Already at the age of 14 he tied for fourth-fifth place in the Marshall Chess Club championship. The next year he won it outright, becoming the youngest Marshall champion up until that time. He also finished equal second in the U.S. Junior Championship, which led to an article in the September 1947 issue of Chess Review.
