8th annual SP Girls Invitational


The 8th annual Susan Polgar Girls' Invitational, the most prestigious all-girls event in the United States, began this afternoon. Each year, over 3,000 young female players compete in state, regional, and qualifying events to earn an invitation.

This year, 45 young ladies, 5-18, have arrived to Texas Tech University in Lubbock, to attend a 3-day intense training, followed by 6 rounds of competition. They will compete for over $120,000 in chess scholarships and prizes.

Let the fun begins!
