|USA born Fabiano Caruana|
Let's take a minute to meet the man that will play for the World Chess Championship against the current title holder - Magnus Carlsen of Norway - this November, 2018.
But as an adult, he returned to the United States and joined the National Chess team. This team now boasts three of the top ten players in the world on it’s 4 boards! That is quite a strong starting line up, And of the 3, Fabiano is the only one actually born on US soil
They moved from there to Budapest, Hungary, for a change of coaching
Then on to Lugano, Switzerland, and then back to Madrid – while still representing Italy in international chess during all these moves.
The USA Team was triumphant, winning the Gold Medal and Caruana won the Bronze Medal for his individual play!
We at LCCC wish Fabiano luck against the Norwegian chess superstar in November!
