We will be featuring our coverage of the Susan Polgar Foundation Girls Invitational right here on the front page with frequent updates by Webmaster, ICA President, Assistant TD, Jeff Roland who is onsite in St. Louis.

Participants and Schedule


Here is a real treat. The Armageddon playoff game from the Blitz Championship held July 22, 2013. Both girls are co-champions, equal in every way. But the trophy itself needed to be decided as to who got to take that home. This game decided that. In an Armageddon game, White had to win and got 5 minutes (no delay), Black had draw odds, meaning she could draw and still win, but had only 3 minutes. Becca had won the coin toss and chose to be Black with the 3 minutes with draw odds. What followed was incredibly exciting to watch. Click the video to watch.
