Webster University is heading to the "Final Four of Collegiate Chess" (also known as the President's Cup) in suburban Washington D.C. The tournament is the final throw-down in determining the U.S. collegiate team chess champion.

Chess Team Enters Tournament as No. 1 Seed

Webster will enter the tournament as the top seed, because of the players' high international and national chess ratings and rankings. Webster's team has four starters and two alternates, all of whom are ranked as chess grandmasters by the World Chess Federation. In fact, the entire Webster chess team includes eight grandmasters -- unheard of in the world of collegiate chess. The entire country of Canada only has nine grandmasters. Read the full story here.
