Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk is in Switzerland

Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk is in SwitzerlandHello everyone!
No time for a break. The day after the Russia-China match finished I was back in Moscow and the day after that already in Switzerland, on my way to the Swiss National Championship in Flims to which I was invited to play in the men’s National Championship, with GM’s Yannick Pelletier, Viktor Kortschnoi, Joe Gallagher and me, and a few more Titled players. You can follow the tournament on www.schachbund.ch. For the moment I can show you some cool photos of my first couple days in this beautiful country!
