Grandmaster John Fedorowicz

Bronx native, global chess champion, and author John Fedorowicz became known as a force in American chess almost a decade before he earned the title of Grandmaster and twice represented the U.S. in the World Chess Olympiad, in addition to serving as captain for both the men’s and women's Olympiad teams. He is also the winner of five World Open titles, with many international victories to his credit, from Cannes to Sesimbra to Wijk aan Zee, and he was inducted into the U.S. Chess Hall of Fame in 2009. Grandmaster Fedorowicz spends much of his time participating in NYC's chess community, teaching chess to children, and giving private lessons.
