Just want to let everyone who is waiting for my Scotch Game book know that I am still writing it and hopefully it will be done by the end of the year. There is a huge amount of material that I am working on, so please bear with me 🙂
My new FIDE rating is 2482 (my highest so far) and I am on 22nd place in top 100 women in the world!
My next event is going to be a strong open tournament in Rethymnon (Crete) & my husband is going to be the chief-arbiter there. You can see all the information about it on http://www.daor.gr/index.php?id=57,0,0,1,0,0. Then we are going to Paleochora where I won’t be playing but helping a couple of kids who will take part in the event and where my husband will again be the chief-arbiter:-) Photos will follow… 🙂
Here is a link of IM John Donaldson’s review of the DW: KID book:
I have some news to share with you!
First, I played in the Turkish league and scored 6,5 out of 8 on the women’s board! It was the best result in the team.
Secondly, you can check out a very recent and interesting interview of mine (questions asked by the current Women’s World Champion & GM Alexandra Kosteniuk) on http://www.chessblog.com/2009/07/womens-chess-star-interview-yelena.html . Enjoy!
