Mind Sport Games in China

This tournament was organized on a very high level and included several disciplines such as Go, Bridge, Chinese Chess, Draughts and Chess. In Chess there were two separate Elite sections – Men and Women – with three events each: Rapid, Blitz and Blindfold. And if some men have played Blindfold Chess before in Monaco, this was the first ever such event for women! So, in total there were 32 chess-players – 16 men and 16 women. I was rated 13th in all these events but managed to finish on much higher places! In Rapid event I shared 8th-10th with 3.5 points out of 7, in Blitz I shared 6th-7th with 8 out of 15 and in Blindfold I shared 2nd-6th and was 5th with 4.5 out of 7!
