Lady-in-Black Chess Trivia Photo

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

Hi everyone,

Can you name the Grandmaster in Black? For a hint, let's tell you what Fide president Kirsan Ilyumzhinov said at the occasion this photo was taken: "Women are a model of fighting spirit – they always fight until the end, and watching their games is always enjoyable. The percentage of decisive games in women’s competitions is higher than in men’s chess. This championship was exciting from the first day, and there were many dramatic games."

Now, didn't we always say women's chess is more exciting ;)
