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

Hi everyone,

More than 140 chess players, including 65 women from 14 cities, are competing in the 2012 Vietnam National Rapid and Blitz Chess Championships from July 5-10. 

Among them are leading grandmasters Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son, Nguyen Duc Hoa, Pham Le Thao Nguyen and Hoang Thi Bao Tram, as well as others who performed well at the recent Asian Junior Chess Championships, namely Nguyen Thi Mai Hung, Nguyen Anh Khoi and Vu Thi Dieu Ai.

Vietnam’s top player Le Quang Liem could not join the tournament as he is currently playing the 2012 World Rapid and Blitz Chess Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan, from July 1-10.

Eleven rapid and 13 blitz chess games will be played in the first round to select four best players in each category for the semi-finals.
