Alexandra played the 2005 Aeroflot A1 TournamentThe super strong Aeroflot Tournament ended today, with a win of 5 players: GM’s Sutovsky, Kharlov, Ivanchuk, Motylev, and Akopian. Alexandra played against 9 male GM’s, average rating 2590 (which is 100 points higher than Alexandra is), and did pretty much what she was supposed to do statistically, which is 3 points. We are happy that Alexandra has proven in both the Wijk aan Zee “B” Grandmaster tournament and the Aeroflot “A1” that she is able to give a very hard time to the strongest male GM’s in the world. You can see our photo album of the event by clicking here. On the photo to the left you will see Alexandra and her fan Liza Chetina, 7 years old, who played in the “C” tournament and often came to support Alexandra during her games.
