    Emory Tate - International Master

    When you see your name next to Emory Tate's on the pairings chart, adrenaline may rush through your body as you prepare face a vicious predator. One of the most feared players in the U.S., Tate has built a reputation over the years as a swashbuckling tactician who will try to slash you to bits as brilliantly as possible… and he doesn't disappoint.

    Born on the west side of Chicago, but spending formative years in Indiana, (USA) Emory Tate Jr. was taught the game of chess by his father Emory Sr. Indiana is a fairly active chess state, but in the early days of stardom, Tate spent a lot of time in the Chicago area creating a buzz with his hyperactive play. If one observes closely, it is easy to get a glimpse of his brilliant mind.

    Tate's reputation received a boost while he served in the Air Force and was 5-time Armed Forces Champion. His travels have given him the opportunity to make a foray into European chess. Of course, Tate has some comfort in these environments since he is fluent in Russian and has decent command of other languages.

    What is most amazing about Tate is his ability to analyze complicated variations with amazing clarity and speed. His post-mortem analysis sessions often draw huge crowds (some standing in chairs) to witness his entertaining spectacle. Tate will pepper his vivid commentary with "triple exclam!" while rattling off a series of moves with a quickness. During his sessions, the crowds are spellbound by his amazing ideas, humorous barbs and incisive color commentary. He has even received generous applause after his sessions. Amazing!

    International Master, Emory Tate, in my opinion is the greatest player of African ancestry in the history of the game. What an honor it was to engage Emory in many hours of colloquy without mentioning chess.He is a true genius.
