Carissa Yip - New Star on the Horizon

The Wachusett Chess Club does a monthly, 30 minute, chess TV show at the Fitchburg Access Television studios. This show, besides being cablecast, is also netcast via the internet. You can find current, and past programs here.

 This month's October program is dedicated to a Boylston Chess Club member fast becoming one of Massachusetts' favorite daughters in chess - Carissa Yip.

Program hosts Wachusett Chess Club President George Mirijanian, and his co-host Martin Laine, talk with Carissa and her father, Percy, about how Carissa got started in chess, a recent game she played at the 81st Massachusetts Open, and her exciting plans to represent the United States at the World Youth Championships in Slovenia!
