Monika Socko's nice performance at Najdorf Memorial Chess Tournament

GM Monika Socko

Hello Everyone,

The Miguel Najdorf International Chess Festival celebrated the 100th anniversary of the great player from July 17-25 in Warsaw. The events organized included Section A for players with an ELO equal to or greater than 2000, Section B for players with Elo less than 2000 and Section C for players born in and after 2000.

GM Monika Socko, despite losing her last two games, is gaining rating points from the tournament. She was the second best woman at the tournament after WGM Beata Kadziolka. Here is a nice game by Socko against GM Jon Ludvig Hammer.

Here is the nice game Socko-Hammer that you can run in our pgnplayer or watch in flash below.
