ATG Quirkies: The Winner of the “Other” Final Four

In an amazing streak of dominant play “top-rated Webster University has won its fifth consecutive President’s Cup title, beating out the three other invited teams from Texas Tech, St. Louis University, and University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) in an event also known as the “Final Four of College Chess.” About the only question this past weekend was whether the Gorloks would be competing for one or two titles.

Last week, their quartet of college players was denied a chance for a world championship when it was bounced from the PRO Chess League. Instead, the players were then able to focus their efforts on another national championship, which they won with their usual relative ease.”
