Welcome to the Ohio Chess Association Youtube Channel

Enjoy these first 2 videos where NM Tom Britt goes over 2 of John Stopa’s games. As many of you know John passed away July 7th, 2017. The first game Tom goes over is a game from the World Open in which John had the black pieces against IM Emory Tate. The second game is a game where John once again had the black pieces but this time against the well known chess author Eric Schiller. 2 fabulous games with wonderful insight from a National Master!

Look for more of these exciting videos in the near future from some of Ohio’s top players
