Kindred’s Special: A Sad State of Media Alzheimer–Ism

The 34th  Marchand Open held at Strong’s new facilities attracted 140 chess  players.  The prize fund was $10,700+ guaranteed with FIDE and USCF ratings being contested for. No news media coverage!  That is a sad state of affairs in our fair city.

Four Grandmasters, and 3 area masters  tied for lst place, each receiving a handsome cash prize.  There was a battle among all the prize groups, several finishing with ties and sharing the booty!

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle newspaper, and other news outlets never showed up to cover this annual event.  Again, like most times, coverage of city chess finds the news media folks ignoring or having no personal interest so just don’t care to report on local chess events.  Any wonder why the media and the newspapers become less important and the internet news more relevant to the interests as a place to go for city news?

Chess has become big business since the Bobby Fischer Boom of the 1960s-1970s.  Since the downfall of communism and the Soviet Union, many Grandmasters and other elite players have emigrated to other countries where they have put their expertise for chess to good use in teaching, coaching and writing from which has developed a huge mass of young people to play and have fun playing chess especially in the schools round the world.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.
