At Tuesday’s Kiwanis club Joel Sauceda talked about the game of chess and how it can benefit more than just students.
Sauceda works as a pharmacist in Laredo, but has spent much of his life playing chess.
A graduate of Cigarroa High School he became the youngest state chess champion ever from Laredo.
This weekend he has organized a chess tournament on April 16th and 17th.
The Laredo open has a $45 entry fee and has several divisions open to the public.
