The "Xeque Mate Educational Center" hosted the "II Polgars do Cerrado" on Satuday, April 6th. The event was organized in partnership with FBX, Susan Polgar Foundation, ASTCU Club, Fexeg, Improve My Chess and Born Holdings. 25 girls, including the current Brazilian Champion and event winner, Juliana Terao, and WIM Julia Alboredo, participated in the tournament, which counted towards FIDE rating for the participants.
The tournament also counted with training by Grandmaster Andre Diamant, who informed the public of a new partnership between "CE Xeque Mate" and CBX, where GM Diamant will start to train the Olympic training for the Brazilian Women's Chess Team in July.
