RZA from Wu-Tang Clan comes to local Chess tournament from the new organization 9 Queens

The newly created 9 Queens Foundation, created by Tucsonan Jean Hoffman and WGM Jennifer Shahade, recently ran a large tournament in Tucson with the famous rap star and avid chess player and fan, RZA. You can find out more about the 9 Queens foundation at http://www.9queens.org/. Many of Tucson's junior players helped run the main blitz tournament as well as some other events, such as a simul, blindfold chess, teaching sessions and much more.
