Sam Sevian: Continental Champion!

GM Sam Sevian has become the youngest person to win the American Continental championship! From the Kasparov Chess Foundation, we send him a hearty congratulations on a well deserved triumph in Colombia.

Sam’s efforts through the Young Stars program have been impressively rewarded.

The Young Stars – Team USA program has been sponsored by the Kasparov Chess Foundation (KCF) and the Chess Club & Scholastic Center of Saint Louis (CCSCSL) since 2012. A group of young and promising chess players are assessed and evaluated by Garry Kasparov himself, along with KCF President and FIDE Senior Trainer Michael Khodarkovsky. These players are also individually trained by prominent grandmasters and famous coaches, including Alexander Chernin.
