Alexandra Kosteniuk is the top woman in MainzAnother success for Alexandra in Mainz, coming out the top woman in the combination Fischer Random and Rapid Chess with highest overall points: 7 + 7.5 = 14.5 and tie-break points: 45 + 51 = 96. Second came in Stefanova (7.5 + 7 / 93.5) and third Cmilyte (6.5 + 8 /90.5), with same overall points, but lower tie-break points, which means Alexandra played against stronger opponents during the tournaments. The Rapid tournament was won by Radjabov with a fantastic field of 546 players! Thanks to the organizer of this festival Hans-Walter Schmitt (on the left in the photo). A photo album is coming soon…
