Kaliningrad get the visit of Chess Queen Kosteniuk

Hello everyone!

I visited the city of Kaliningrad on Wednesday for meetings to prepare for the “Alexandra Kosteniuk Chess Cup for Kids U-6, U-8 and U-10”, that will take place in Svetlogorsk (see tournament announcement) on November 26 & 27, 2011.

I made a post in Russian at this link, but for the moment I will share with you some nice photos of that day trip below.



First  of all, let me show you where Kaliningrad is:



I flew to Kaliningrad on the same flight as Mariya Kiselyova, Olympic Gold Medalist in Synchronized Swimming, and we were met by the Vice-Minister of Sports Oleg Kosenkov. See also the Trivia Post I made on where the answer was Mariya.



That’s me below on the embankment of the Baltic Sea



After the Press Conference dedicated to the upcoming tournament I gave a chess simul to 12 talented kids of the Kaliningrad region.



After the hard-fought simul and a short lunch break, I visited the Baltic Academy of Fish Industry.




May all your dreams come true!


Yours truly,
Alexandra Kosteniuk
