Coventry Chess match ends in a draw
It was a "heated" battle between two local chess champions in Coventry Village on July 22.
International Grand Master Champion Anatoly Lein, 81, battled 90-degree temperatures with National Master David Allen, 52. The two played on a wooden table near the benches under the Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Arch for two hours and forty-five minutes, in a well-fought match that ended in a draw. A crowd of chess afficionados surrounded the players to take in the action.
