texastechlead.jpgThe Spice Cup kicks off on November 9, Friday in Lubbock, Texas, hosted by Texas Tech. Tournament organizer GM Susan Polgar hopes that all the participants play well, but hopes someone comes home for Thanksgiving with a norm. " I hope that Irina Krush, Dmitry Schneider and Blas Lugo will be able to get their GM norms." You can watch the games live on Monroi.com or the ICC . The games start at 5 PM EST except for the final round on November 16, which begins at 11 AM EST. You can access the full schedule here. Also check Susan Polgar's blog for more information.
