This club was founded in 1989 by Héctor R. Hernández, Branch Manager of the Rudy Lozano Branch of the Chicago Public Library. It has met continuously, on a weekly basis, for the last 30 years. It offers three to four, free chess tournaments a year which are open to all. The most important of these tournaments is the Chicago Latino Chess Championship, held every year on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. It draws up to 126 players! This year's edition will be its 27th. Our club has been nationally recognized as one of the Top Fifty Library Programs for Young Adults by the American Library Association. Chess Life, the official publication of the United States Chess Federation, has recently featured our chess program. The club has produced many city, state and national champions ranging in age from kindergarten to high school. The club, which meets every Thursday at 6 p.m., continues to attract many players of all ages. Knight Moves Chess Club members will be on hand at Pilsen Fest to take on all comers!
