Kosteniuk to play in the Corsica Chess Blitz 2014 Tourney

Kosteniuk to play in the 2014 Corsica Chess Blitz tournamentHello everybody!
In case you were planning a summer vacation in Europe, consider going to the beautiful island of Corsica, where on the Sunday July 13 will take place the Corsica Blitz Chess Tournament. Check out the official poster below, the organizers page with an introduction video in Corsican language and a mate in 1 puzzle, and some of my blitz games below. I was last time in Corsica and won a match against French women’s champion Sophie Milliet (see post, photos, and the YouTube video). Let me know if you will come to Corsica and play chess, it’s only one day of chess and lots to visit on one of the most beautiful islands in the world: Corsica!

Here is the official poster of the event:
