I’m in Batumi, Georgia, and just finished the two incredibly strong Women’s World Rapid and Women’s World Blitz Championships. Although I always want to do better, I’m pretty happy of my result, Silver medal in the Rapid with a performance of 2672 ELO, behind Antoaneta Stefanova, and 4th in the Blitz, with a performance of 2583, behind Valentina Gunina, Natalia Zhukova, and Anna Muzychuk. Have a look at the full Rapid and Blitz tables. Below I attach some photos of the event. I have videos of many of my games, and will post them soon on my YouTube channel “ChessQueen”. Tomorrow I’m going to go sight-seeing in Batumi, so you will have more photos too!

Hello everybody! I found in my files an old video from 1998, 14 years ago, I’m sure you will enjoy it! It was filmed in France at the World Rapid Chess Championship. Anatoly Karpov, the 12th World Chess Champion of history is holding my trophy. 10 years later, I will also become the 12th Women’s World Chess Champion of history.
