Chess from the center of the earth
The Texas Tech Knight Raiders chess team members will be playing a rated chess tournament from the center of the earth (not literally)in about 2 weeks. It will take them about an hour just to manually descent about 1,000 feet to the spot where they will have the tournament. Then they will engage in a 6 round SS tournament. The event has been approved by the National Park Service. Stay tuned for more details.
