The Susan Polgar Girls Invitational!!! A New "Old" Event!!!

Good news for scholastic chess and particularly chess femmes playing in scholastic events!!!  The event formerly known as the Susan Polgar National Invitational that was killed by the United States Chess Federation has been reinstituted by The Susan Polgar Foundation, SPICE, and Texas Tech University, as the Susan Polgar Girls Invitational!

Back story and announcement of the new event.

Rules and regulations for the Susan Polgar Girls Invitational.

Susan Polgar Girls Invitational
July 25 - 30, 2010
Texas Tech University
Lubbock, Texas

The girls who qualify for the Susan Polgar Girls Invitational will receive intensive personal training from GM Susan Polgar over five days. 

  • 6 round G/30 Championship tournament on the last 2 days.
  • The traditional blitz, puzzle solving, bughouse events will stay the same as previous years.
  • There will be many prizes awarded, including scholarships to Texas Tech University.
The SPNI was a very successful and popular scholastic event specifically geared toward young female players and I am so glad to see Texas Tech, SPICE and the Susan Polgar Foundation bring it back!  A heartfelt thank you to all involved in the Susan Polgar Girls Invitational.
