September 10, 2004 The small Kansas town of Lindsborg (pop. 3,200) is home to the World Champion Anatoly Karpov International School of Chess. Next weekend, two world champions of chess, Karpov and Susan Polgar, will meet in the town to play in a tournament billed as the "Clash of the Titans." NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Mikhail Korenman, director of the chess school, about the town's connection to world-caliber chess champions.
