Featured Articles in the November 2019 Chess Life

  • Our November issue is dedicated to the legendary GM Pal Benko, beginning with GM Joel Benjamin's feature story celebrating Benko's life and legacy. Throughout this month's pages, be sure look for special columns paying tribute to Benko's prodigious body of games and work. We also pay homage to another lost chess legend, Shelby Lyman, "TV's First Chesscaster." And no November issue would be complete without extensive coverage of the U.S. Open and its many side events and activities. Al Lawrence provides a comprehensive wrap-up of the event.
