The Kosteniuk simul begins at 9 AM EST on Friday, May 7th and the Entry Fee is $40. You can sign up at the USCF store now for the event and the simul. The National K-12 Championships Kosteniuk simul sold out quickly, so don't wait! Kosteniuk will also sign her books at the event including her latest, "Diary of a Chess Queen" which you can pick up at USCF Sales. Or go to chessqueen.com for an autographed copy.

The Elementary Nationals will also host a FIDE Trainers Seminar for Women, which you can read more about on Kosteniuk's blog.
