Right 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. I made a post on my Russian Livejournal page, I will soon add here more information and photos of the winners.
Here is a map so you can see where Svetlogorsk is:
