Costa Rican Chess Champion

Alejandro RamírezImage via Wikipedia Here’s one for you: Who won the US Open Chess Championship this year?

Answer: Alejandro Ramirez, from Costa Rica.

He beat some of the games superstars and became the first Latin American to win the tournament. Costa Rica is not a chess Mecca, but Ramirez took every chance he could find to compete in Europe, Argentina and Russia. It paid off.
