WFM Jackie Peng just played at the 10th Annual Susan Polgar Foundation Girls' Invitational Chess Championship from July 21 to 25 in St Louis.

Jackie finished with 4.5/6 and received a $52K Webster University Scholarship!

This is the very first time that GM Susan Polgar extended her invitation to top girls outside US. Other Canadians competing were: Alexandra Botez (4.5/6 ; who also won a scholarship), Andrea Botez (4/6), Sasha Konovalenko (3.5/6), and Janet Peng (3/6)
