Susan Kantor Memorial

The Internet Chess Club (ICC) announces the 1st Annual Susan E. Kantor Memorial Online Chess Tournament to be held on Sunday, October 18, 2020. The event will be an online quick rated, seven-round event (full details at the end of the article) with all proceeds to benefit at-risk youth.

After Susan Kantor’s passing on August 5, ICC President Marty Grund reached out to Susan’s husband, Alan Kantor, to offer his condolences. Alan’s relationship with ICC goes back nearly 25 years—he was an ICC administrator, volunteer, helper, tournament director, and friend to everyone at ICC.
