Alexandra Sacrifices a Rook and wins at the World Open 2003
Thanks to Alexandra’s many fans who sent good wishes, Alexandra was brilliant at the World Open in Philadelphia (37 GM’s present!), getting 6.5 points out of 9 (6 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses), only 0.5 points behind the winners, among which GM’s Smirin, Onitschuk, Yudasin, Ehlvest, Goldin, Shabalov, Wojtkevicz, Zaitschik, Annakov and IM Firman. See the results here. She did a good performance by drawing the tournament’s highest rated player, GM Smirin in the 6th round, and we are pleased to offer to you her magnificent win in the last round, against FM Lev Milman.

Alexandra is now travelling from the USA to the beautiful village of Silvaplana (Switzerland) to take part in the Swiss National Open Championship that will start on July 10.
