Hello everyone, more chess news that makes Saint Louis a star chess city!

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Senate has passed a resolution naming St. Louis the "National Chess Capital."

The resolution was introduced by Sen. Clair McCaskills (D-Mo.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and was passed Monday night. It recognizes after-school chess programs, which help students learn problem-solving skills and improve test scores.
