Hi everyone,
The next huge chess event coming up is the Women's World Chess Championship 2012 that will see 64 of the strongest women chess players - including Chess Queen™ Alexandra Kosteniuk - vie for the title. This is the first time that the event is taking place in the beautiful Khanty-Mansiysk. 

The Ugorian Chess Academy is holding the event from November 11 to December 2. The official website of the event is now up and can be accessed at this link

The Ugra Chess Academy was built by OJSC Gazprom neft through the program 'Gazprom for children'. Modern technologies and engineering solutions were used in the process of the construction of the building, they provided the complex with the multi-functional usage, and they allow to reduce the expenses for power consumption and conditioning of the building. The unique three-level building without sharp corners styled as a chess piece was built in the capital of Ugra during two years upon the project of the famous Dutch architect Erick Van Egeraat.
