2007 Pan American Intercollegiate Set to Begin
The six-round event is open to college teams throughout North and South America, as well as the Carribean. Last year, the top two teams came from the same school. The University of Texas-Dallas (UTD) captured both first place and second place, with perennial rival University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) finishing a rather distant third.
You can read about last year's event in the January 2007 and February 2007 editions of my Scholastic Chess ChessCafe column.
