January 6th, 2003

Alexandra just finished the very difficult Premier invitational tournament in Hastings (England), where she started being the lowest rated player, against 9 male grandmasters. Her theoretical expected result was 3.2 points, and she did just about that, getting 3.0 points, winning games against GM Tseshkovsky and in the last round winning against GM McShane, with draws against GM Sasikirian and GM Arkell. While she wanted to do better (she missed several good opportunities), it’s only while playing against stronger players that you get better yourself. Way to go, Alexandra! 🙂
You can see the detailed results here . In 3 days she will head to Wijk aan Zee (Holland) to participate in another strong invitational tournament, we’ll keep you posted!
