Alexandra is at the European Championships in Dresden
Alexandra just got back from Moscow a few days ago, where she did a very nice 6.5 out of 9 in the semi-finals of the Moscow Championships (Men), winning about 7 ELO points and qualifying for the Final of the Moscow Championships (Men). She won’t be able to play in the Moscow finals, because she is playing the European Women’s Championships in Dresden (Germany), which will last until April 4. She has now 3 points out of 4. Let’s wish Alexandra luck for the next games (8 games to go). We will have soon many photos for you.
