Intense SPGI Training
Participants from the 2010 SP Girl's Invitational are receiving intense training to improve many important facets of their games, including planning, middlegame understanding, endgame, defensive skill, tactics, proper evaluation and analysis, etc.
Texas Tech University, SPICE, and the Susan Polgar Foundation will once again host the 2011 SP Girl's Invitational next year and for many more years to come. The long term idea is to improve the playing level of America's best young female talents and to revolutionize girl's chess in this country.
Girls approach chess very differently than boys and this is the first time they will have a chance to learn chess the right way to have the best possible long term benefit. In addition to learning, improving, and playing chess, they are also enjoying many other fun activities while making plenty of new friends.
