‘Beat the Greeks’ Chess Challenge On the Texas Tech Campus Today


Come watch the Greeks take on TTU Head Chess Coach Grandmaster Alex Onischuk, one of the top chess players in the world! He’ll play 40 or more fraternity representatives simultaneously!

Onischuk, a former U.S. Chess Champion and a player on the USA’s elite, four-member chess Olympiad Team, is one of the world’s leading players. He is the highest-rated university chesscoach in the U.S.!

WHEN: Wednesday, November 7, 2:15 p.m.

WHERE: In the area between the Library and the Student Union Building (In case of bad weather, go to the Matador Room of the Student Union.)

The best-performing fraternity will keep the traveling “Texas Tech Greek Chess Challenge” trophy until next year’s event. The winning representative will also earn the right to play Onischuk in a one-on-one game in which Alex is blindfolded.

That event will be scheduled for the spring semester.

Texas Tech’s chess team, the Knight Raiders, has won the Intercollegiate Chess Championship for the past two years.
