SUSAN POLGAR INVITATIONAL 2009
At 10:00 a.m. numerous competitors, parents, and local media were present to witness the ribbon cutting ceremony by GM Susan Polgar and Texas Tech Administration members of the new chess park on campus.
Following the ceremony, several players played for the media as video and pictures were taken for the evening news.
Claudia was asked by the winner of the Susan Polgar National Open 2009, played in Arizona, to play several games in order to try out the facilities at the park.
After Claudia played, she was able to receive a piece of the ribbon that was used in the ceremony for keeping in her scrapbook.
At 1:30 p.m. she will be on board 9 to play two-time Ohio State Champion Rebecca Lelko. Rebecca was winner of the 2007 Susan Polgar World Open where she received a $36,000 scholarship to attend Texas Tech University.
