Kosteniuk in Bogota Day 2



Hi everybody!

This is the photo of today's 25 participants to the Tarrito Rojo Chess Talent 2010 simul, that took place in Bogotá's biggest mall, the Gran Estación.

The 25 players were the winners of the Tarrito Rojo Chess Talent 2010 tournament, which took place last month, and in which over 500 kids took part, in categories U-8, U-10, U-12, U-14, and U-16.

The result of the simul was +21 =4 -0.

Tomorrow I fly to Medellin for more chess fiestas, will post more news and photos later!

    Alexandra it is wonderful that you are going to be commentating live on the games of the Anand-Topalov match at the Chessdom.com website. I really look forward to you being a commentator and learning from you. Thanks for your willingness to do this, when you have your family and other obligations as well to deal with each day! You certainly are one of the most altruistic persons I have ever known and communicated with!
    Best wishes and lets hope the match is a good one,
    sincerely,
    Wayne

    Wonderful job supporting chess practice in Latin America! Congratulations!

    I just have read today in a peruvian newspaper that you're gonna play an exhibition game in Macchu Picchu, Cuzco, against current U-16 World Champion Deysi Cori... is that confirmed?? That would be really AWESOME!!

    Greetings from Lima.
