Earlier today, approximately 20 participants of the 2009 SPNI plus their families and coaches received an official tour of the beautiful and BIG Texas Tech campus. It is the second largest campus (in physical size) in the United States. Another campus tour took place 2 days earlier.
The players who already took the earlier tour got a chance to participate in simul against IM Antal (GM norms), member of the Texas Tech Knight Raiders, at the new SPICE Chess Park. IM Antal just arrived from Budapest late last night. He will soon head to Indianapolis to compete in the Collegiate Championship.
