Amber super rapid and blindfold tournament starts next week.
There are around 300 young chess players in Carefree, Arizona this weekend for the 2010 SP National Open for Girls and Boys. The winner of each section receives a high tech netbook computer and there are over $100,000 in prizes, including chess scholarships to Texas Tech University.
The Carefree Resort is a premier location to hold this event and we are planning to return to this same spectacular location next year.
