Non-Stop Girl!

On May, 11 Alexandra visited an old French city of Lille, where she was invited by the association "Lille aux Echecs" which organizes every year a festival of games of strategy to promote them among the public. Alexandra gave a simul on 32 boards in order to popularize chess. The simul took place in the open air and it was very cold, but the young World-Vice Woman Chess Champion is not used to give up, she stood it very bravely and the simul passed very well. And … has she ever visited your city?
