Alexandra just came back from a long chess weekend in Gmunden, Austria. On Friday she participated in a fun blitz tournament, scored 9/13 and got the highest rating performance, beating I. Krush, J. Jackova, and both T. and E. Paehtz. We have all of Alexandra’s blitz games in video and will soon be able to present them to you. On Saturday, Alexandra took on 26 players of all levels in the beautiful Esplanade in front of the Traunsee lake. Tomorrow we’ll post a nice photo album of the event.
