Erik Knower is a competitor in the Midwest Combat Chess League, currently signed to The Legion



Knower had been a longtime fan of the Midwest Combat Chess League and finally decided to try out for the League in 2015. After completing The Crucible, he was drafted by The Templars.

Knower proved an intimidating presence on the board due to his 6'8" stature, that presence was only enhanced when during a Longsword contest he managed to break his opponent’s blade. Upon later inspection by the league it was discovered there was a flaw in the broken blade which lead to it easily being broken, but it didn't matter, Knower's reputation has been cemented among other players in the league and the fans alike.

Knower was on the board for the 2015 Championship game, but saw no action.


Knower was drafted by The Legion for 2016, he also was voted in the Preseason 2016 All-Star Game.
