On Sunday, April 26, I visited the 2009 All-Girls National Chess Championships, held at the Hyatt Regency Reunion in downtown Dallas. My photo essay, which is linked to the tournament results, was posted April 27 on the Chess Life Online Web site. The South Texas Chess Center ran the chess bookstore at the tournament. Thanks to its proprietor Dan DeLeon for buying a copy of my third book Read, Write, Checkmate: Enrich Literacy with Chess Activities.
