12th Women's World Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Blog for Latest Chess News and Trivia (c) 2013

Hi everyone, 

The final of the 82nd Ukrainian Chess Championship took place on 15-26th June in Kiev with 12 players competing in the round-robin format. Grandmasters Yuriy Kryvoruchko and Ruslan Ponomariov shared the first place with 7,5 points each. Kryvoruchko is declared new national champion thanks to the better tie-break score. Last year's champion Anton Korobov finished third half a point behind.
