SPICE Spring Invitational

IM Irina Krush is back at SPICE!  She is the lone woman playing in this exciting event, and she is gunning for a second GM norm.  To earn it, she will need to score 6.0 in 9 rounds - a tall order.  I am rooting for her.  Good luck to Irina. 

Round 1 action begins this afternoon.  Susan Polgar's blog and will be providing coverage. (Hmmm, as of the time of making this post, I could not find any link to coverage of the SPICE Spring Invitational at the Monroi website).  Here are the match-ups for Round 1:

2:00 pm - 6:30 pm Round 1 (FIDE ratings listed)
IM Krush (2461) - GM Finegold (2534)
IM Antal (2511) - FM Yang (2378)
IM Kuljasevic (2552) - GM Kraai (2508)
