GM Polgar has kindly posted an entry on her popular blog about the ongoing All-Army Chess Championship. She is also generously donating three autographed books and three instructional DVDs as prizes to be given out this Friday. The players have received the news and were thrilled about it. GM Polgar is widely adored within the military chess community.
There is talk to invite her in the future for a simultaneous exhibition against the All-Army Chess Team. She has already expressed her commitment to even donate more prizes next year.
