Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Talented Russian player IM Valentina Gunina is going to remember Gaziantep and March, 2012 for a long time to come! She has just won the European Women's Blitz Championship as well after winning the European Women's Championship in classical chess. 

In the final round she managed to beat former Women's World Champion Antoaneta Stefanova 2:0, and this victory gave her first place. Elisabeth Pähtz, who was leading before the last round, lost to Nadezda Kosintseva 1.5:0.5 and finished with the silver medal. Nana Dzagnidze got the third.

Congratulations to all the winners and to all the beautiful women who played beautiful chess over the last fortnight in Turkey! You can access the official website here.
