Default Is Susan Polgar National Invitational for Girls 2010 Still On?

I was just on the SP Daily News site and noticed that the advert that
was there about a month ago for the Susan Polgar National Invitational
for Girls 2010 in August at TTU appears to have been taken down (unless
I just didn't spot it). This is the event where TTU provides free room
and board in the TTU for the participants. Is this event still on at TTU
for this August?

I'll wager Philsey can tell us.

Maybe they moved it to the same page Paul moved his resume to...

The advert was possibly a hack job by the same person who allegedly
hacked Truong's resume page.

Line Judge Rafferty confuses his own homosexual terms with what anyone
might want to hear about on chess subjects. This can't be any
recommendation to allowing him back onto any forum, since even though
banned from all known audited forums, he continues to 'act-up'.

How come Lafferty can't find this? Is it lack of wit or being
overcome with his own?

The tornament has just recently ended. The main section, with a prize
fund of $600,000, donated by the USCF, was won by a Miss Z Poglar of
Nome, Alaska.

The entrance fee, however, was $2,200,000.

Philsey, I can still find the same advert on another Polgar site. It's
been there since the day the 2009 event ended. The point is, in case
you missed it, the advert for the 2010 event has been *pulled* from her
Daily Chess News and Info blog. It was there just a couple of weeks ago
and is no more. How about you confirm for us that the event is still on
at TTU this coming August.

You're a reporter. You should be able to dig for that information.

As a reporter, he is even weaker than he is as a chess player. I
wouldn't count on anything substantive.

Well, actually, the material I posted was on the blog yesterday - and
since you goons are so anxious, why not do some reporting yourselves?
Is it that no one will talk to you anymore?

And as for your remarks, that qualifies you as both non-chess players,
and non-reporters too.

O how typical and hypocritical - to demand with abuse what you don't
demonstrate yourself!

Not on the Daily Chess News and Information blog, Philsy. Even Sevan
Muradian remarked on the USCF Issues Forum that it has been taken down
from there. How about you try asking your bosses again--maybe ask them
over on chessdiscussion.com.

Come on, Philsy. Show us what kind of reporter you are. Your 60,000
readers per month are dying to know the kind of job you're capable of. :-)
