2nd Annual Susan Polgar Foundation’s North American All Girls Championship

November 5, 2017


This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the 2nd Annual Susan Polgar Foundation’s North American All Girls Championship held by Bay Area Chess at the beautiful Biltmore Hotel in Santa Clara, California. As always, Grandmaster Susan Polgar was very personable with all the girls in attendance. The huge efforts by Chief TD Martha Underwood and organizer Judit Sztaray made this tournament a delight to attend. Hopefully this tradition will continue in the Bay Area. It is wonderful to see so many girls (including my own) playing in a such a unique chess tournament.
