LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock area students were encouraged to "Get Smart Play Chess" which was the title of Saturday's event hosted by SPICE of Texas Tech.   SPICE is short for Susan Polgar Institute for Chess Excellence.  Participants ranged in age from kindergarten, up through high school, with trophies awarded to top finishers.  

Program director and Chess Grandmaster, Susan Polgar, says chess opens-up a world of opportunity for children.   Saturday's event comes just before many of the world's most prestigious chess players arrive for SPICE Cup 2010.  It is the highest rated international invitational tournament, and it will be right here in Lubbock, next week.
