The 2016 Champions Showdown is wrapping up at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis.

In the tournament, two former world champions and two former US champions have been facing off for a $150,000 prize.

Each year, the club hosts major events to spotlight top chess players and demonstrate opportunities the game can provide for local students.

Each semester, 4,000 students from around 100 local schools learn at the center.
