The sheriff’s gambit!

Friday, April 01, 2016

by Michael Sneed

The rook hook! Sneed is told former world chess champion Anatoly Karpov hits town Friday to observe the movements of kings, queens and pawns at Cook County Jail.

• Translation: Karpov joins Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart for Cook County Jail’s second international chess tournament, part of Dart’s strategy to instill patience, diligence and critical thought to over 600 inmates who participate in the program.

• Backshot: The first international inmate chess tournament between 10 Cook County inmates and 10 prisoners in Russia was held via Skype in 2013. Although the Russians won, Karpov claimed one of the Cook County inmates was the most impressive player.

• Upshot: The event will be held at 10 a.m. Friday in the medium security men’s division in Cook County Jail.
