The Chess Super Nationals of 2017 was held at Opryland this month. It was put on by the United States Chess Federation. I was hired by American Chess Magazine to cover the juvenile division. Even though these are kids, they are masters. The concentration in the room was palpable and you could hear the wheels turning in the kids' heads as they plotted their next move. There was a book signing by Chess Master Gary Kasparov and other chess activities throughout the resort.
