@haltrunes @SusanPolgar @WOMChess @advorkovich @ChesscomNews @Anna_Chess @JenShahade @NastiaKarlovich @ASamaganova @ruchess_eng @chessqueen @NaziPaiki Nos encantaría poder contar tanto con Sabrina como con otras jugadoras! Sin embargo, como es lógico, lamentablemente no podemos invitar a todos los jugadores y jugadoras que querríamos. Y no siempre a quien invitamos le va bien jugar y declinan su presencia, como en este caso.

Beautiful (and short) opening ceremony in Khanty-Mansiysk gave start the last knock-out #WWCC ever organized by @FIDE_chess. After the welcoming speech by @advorkovich, women’s world champion Ju Wenjun picked Black in her and all other odd-numbered players’ first game. #ugrachess https://t.co/ape4qKQbE7
