The grand prizes will go to the first four correct answers or the four best answers received by NOON EST December 30, 2009. Send your answers to CLO editor Jennifer Shahade at jshahade@uschess.org with the subject line 2009 Holiday Contest. Be sure to include your name or USCF ID number. You must be a USCF member to win.

The first person to answer the bonus question correctly will also pick up a copy of Marcel Duchamp: The Art of Chess by Francis M. Naumann, Bradley Bailey and Jennifer Shahade.
