Jericho Chess Mates Tourney Bound
June 5, 2015 by Steve Mosco
Two young chess pros from Jericho were recently invited by the U.S. Chess Federation to represent the country in competition in the 2015 World Youth Championship in Halkidiki, Greece, this fall.
Chess mates Wesley Wang and Evelyn Zhu have received this honor before; this is Wang’s second invitation to represent the U.S. in competition, while this is Zhu’s third opportunity. Both coached by international grandmaster Gennady Saglachik, they each represented the U.S. in their age categories last year in Durban, South Africa.
