The 2009 SPICE Cup International Invitational Tournament just started Saturday. The world-class International chess competition brings a high-powered lineup of young chess superstars to Lubbock.
This tournament, in its third year, once again sets the record for the highest-rated international invitational round robin tournament in U.S. history. This is equivalent to bringing Wimbledon or the PGA championship to Texas Tech and Lubbock.
