The Yucatán Chess Legend

A photo tribute to grandmaster Manuel Leon Hoyos, a Yucatán chess legend

Yesterday I wrote a tribute about Grandmaster Manuel Leon Hoyos (, one of the first official recruits of the Webster University SPICE program when we started in 2012. Here are some of the photos, from the first Press Conference to introduce the team, to winning the first College Chess Final Four Championship in 2013. These are rarely seen photos with Manuel and his teammates: Ray Robson, Wesley So, Georg Meier, Anatoly Bykhovsky, Fidel Corrales, Andre Diamant, Denes Boros, and Vitaly Neimer, etc.
