53rd International Women’s Grandmaster Chess Tournament

Belgrade, the city where Richard Rapport just won the Grand Prix, is going to hold its traditional March tournament. Celebrating the International Women’s Day – 8th March with a strong chess tournament is a tradition in Belgrade since 1965. This event is in the select group of the tournaments with the longest continuity in the chess world. Former world champions Nona Gaprindashvili and Maia Chiburdanidze were regularly featured in the tournament, but as of late the organizers have decided to give a chance to younger players.

This year’s 8th of March event will be a 10 player round robin event. Top seeded are WGM Xu Yuanyuan and WGM Maria Manakova, in the company of young chess stars as WIM Andreea Novratescu, FM Nadya Toncheva, etc.
