In advance of the 2013 College Chess Final Four April 5-7 in Rockville, Md., Webster University chess coach Susan Polgar was invited to play outside in New York City on the “Fox & Friends” morning news show Monday, March 18.
Braving some brisk temperatures in Manhattan, the hosts challenged Polgar to a 90-second game on an outdoor board, and … well let’s just say Polgar taught them a thing or two in short order. Watch the segment here: http://video.foxnews.com/v/2234317601001.
Polgar, founder of the Susan Polgar Institute for Chess Excellence, will lead her Webster University chess team to the Final Four as the top-ranked collegiate chess team in the nation. The lineup includes six grandmasters (four starters and two reserve players):
