Russian Chess Queen Diary Presentation

Today, September 9, 2009 the leading Moscow news organization "Argumenty I Fakty" (see wiki page) invited me to a Press Conference to talk about the newly published Russian version of my book "Дневники шахматной королевы" ("Diary of a Chess Queen" in Russian). If you read Russian and would like to buy it, it's available now and on sale on .

During the Press Release and presentation I answered many questions about my book, and many others, such as what is the difference between men's and women's chess, what are my expectations for the Karpov-Kasparov chess match that will take place in Valencia in September, what do I think about doping in chess, will it be possible to see chess in the Olympic Games one day and many more questions. I also gave a 10-board simul and won all games. It was all recorded by TV and I hope to get a copy to share with you later on.

Here are some photos of today's presentation in Moscow:

I remind you that the English version of my book "DIARY OF A CHESS QUEEN" is available for pre-order now and will be coming out in the USA on December 1, just in time for Christmas! If you order it before it's published you are guaranteed pre-Christmas delivery and also I will sign a free personal autograph for you or for your loved one in the book. When ordering mention the desired text, for example "Merry Christmas to ..." and I will add a note to that too.
