Thanks to the generosity of Tibor Weinberger the Mechanics' Institute will be holding the Third Imre Konig Memorial September 22-23. The event, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of the death of International Master Konig, the first top rate player to reside in San Francisco, will be held as a seven-player round-robin, featuring a rapid chess time control of Game in 30 minutes, with a 15-second increment from move one.
The invited players consist of the top six rated players from the Bay Area-Grandmasters Sam Shankland, Nick de Firmian, Vinay Bhat, Jesse Kraai and Walter Browne, and International Master Daniel Naroditsky.
The last player, Grandmaster Emil Anka of Hungary, pays respect to Konig's ancestry as an international cosmopolitan who was born in the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in Kula, in today's Serbia.
