It is a shame this event was not advertised in the Chess community or with other organizers. This is a wonderful event and my child has participated both last year and in Vegas. I am aware of at least two other tournaments that may take away solid players.

Dear Susan:

Is it ture there won't be any National Girls Polgar Tournament this year? It was scheduled late July originally. Where would the girls state champions play then?
