Kosteniuk's busy schedule for the fall 2009

Hello all!

October 2009 is approaching and so my very intense chess schedule will soon start. On the first of October I will fly to Europe where I will play and participate in the following competitions and events:

From October 3 till October 11 I will be playing in the European Club Cup for the Monaco Chess Team .

Immediately after the end of the Eurocup I will go to Halkidiki (Greece) for the 80th FIDE Congress which will take place from October 12 till October 18.

In between very important meetings in Halkdiki, on October 14 I will fly for one day to Athens where a big chess festival will take place and I will give a simul there.

I will come back from Athens to Halkidki on October 15th and will take part in the Presidential Board meeting of FIDE on October 16 and 17.

On October 18 I will fly to Moscow, from where together with my team of Russia I will fly to Novi Sad (Serbia) to the European Team Chess Championship on October 21.

After this championship I will come back to Miami in order to spend some time with my daughter and to prepare for even more exciting November where I will take part in the World Blitz Chess Championship in Moscow and in the World Chess Cup in Khanty-Mansiisk.

Of course I won't forget to tell you the answers to my September puzzle contest and will announce the winners of this month just before flying to Europe on October 1. And of course I will post 3 new puzzles for the October puzzle contest.

That's quite a busy schedule, don't you think so?

And to finish this post here is a small combination from one of my today's blitz-games:

Black just played 22. ... Qe5?? what is the best continuation for White right now?
