Legendary GM Boris Gulko, reigning US Open Champion and former Soviet and US Champion, and GM Gilberto Hernandez (head coach of the UTB chess team), one of the top Grandmasters from Mexico for many years, have been confirmed for the prestigious Reshevsky Memorial International Invitational Tournament. The tournament will be held at Texas Tech University from November 9 to 16, 2007.
SPICE and the Susan Polgar Foundation (SPF) are very thankful for the generous donation by Dr. Eric Moskow to make this outstanding event possible. He is not only a generous sponsor to various chess events around the world, but a formidable opponent to anyone as well. Dr. Moskow will personally take part in this inaugural International tournament at TTU.
More names will be announced as they are confirmed.
