Tallahassee Chess Club is proud to sponsor the Tallahassee Open/Robert L. Froemke Memorial Chess Tournament. The tournament is in honor of Dr. Froemke, who for many years was the driving force of chess in Tallahassee. Many “old timers” around here have him to thank for their love of chess today. I remember the first tournament I played in as a young child was organized and run by Dr. Froemke.
