Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Cup in Svetlogorsk 2012Right this weekend, my 2012 Kosteniuk Chess Cup for Kids U-6, U-8 and U-10 is taking place in Svetlogorsk, Russia. More than 100 kids have been invited and are fighting for the top prizes. There is a lot of attention from the city and state authorities, many sponsors are helping to make this event a success.
