|Mar-24-19|| ||sonia91: List of participants from the official website: http://eiwcc2019.tsf.org.tr/en/comp...|
Aleksandra Goryachkina, who is currently playing in the European Championship (2019), is the top seed and only 2500+ player.
|Apr-20-19|| ||e4Newman: Thank you chessgames. There's been some great matches so far so I'm excited to see them posted here and get some discussion going!!|

|Apr-20-19|| ||sonia91: <The castling rule was broken, but no one noticed!>
Round 3 made the headlines because of the game Maria Gevorgyan - Deimante Cornette: http://chessbase.in/news/Castling-r...|
|Apr-22-19|| ||sonia91: Congratulations to Alina Kashlinskaya!
She is the fourth Russian to become European women's champion, her compatriots who previously won are: Alexandra Kosteniuk (2004), Tatiana Kosintseva (2007 and 2009) and Valentina Gunina (2012, 2014, 2018).
Curiously, Artemiev and Kashlinskaya, who both became European individual champions this year, were also Russian junior champions in the same year, in 2013 precisely.
|Apr-22-19|| ||sonia91: Hoang Thanh Trang misses the qualification to the Women's World KO for the first time in her career. She took part in all Women's WC ko events so far.|
Other big names that didn't make the cut are Natalia Pogonina (runner-up in the 2015 World Championship), Olga Girya, Bela Khotenashvili, Nino Batsiashvili, Natalia Zhukova (whose rating recently dropped under 2400): http://chess-results.com/tnr423302....
Top seed Aleksandra Goryachkina had a quite underwhelming tournament, she did well in the open European Individual Championship. Now she has to focus on the Women's Candidates in Kazan, Russia.
|Apr-24-19|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Almost all the GM women are "mature" girls if we compare them with the GM males. Is there some reason for this? I don't know.|
PS. I think that women have lesser opportunities than the males.
|May-03-19|| ||Sokrates: Looking at the list of participants and nationalities, it is very striking that "European" primarily means eastern Europe (east of the old iron curtain). Among the first 50 I counted 10 from western Europe: 3 from France, 2 from Spain, 1 from each of the countries Germany, Sweden, England, Italy and Scotland.|
It's trivial knowledge that chess historically has been much more present in the east than in the west, yet I am a bit surprised that things haven't changed. Good old Pia Cramling still represents whole Scandinavia - with a great result I might add. Nevertheless.
|May-03-19|| ||HeMateMe: Chess is a low cost hobby for youth? The west perhaps has more diversions for youth, more Play Station video games, 500 channel TV on the wide screen, more computer notebooks...|
The eastern European kids are probably better at science in the classroom, too. The USA continues to import academic PhDs from eastern Europe and SE Asia because our own kids have lost interest in math, chemistry and physics.
|May-03-19|| ||Count Wedgemore: <Sokrates: It's trivial knowledge that chess historically has been much more present in the east than in the west, yet I am a bit surprised that things haven't changed.>|
It would be more surprising if things had changed.
|May-03-19|| ||Sokrates: Yes, <HeMateMe>, those are likely some of the reasons. In Denmark many young men play online games like Counterstrike, but I direct my wrath :-) towards the so-called social media (Instagram, Facebook etc.) for stealing everyone's time and attention. It has become a social disease, a kind of unhealthy addiction IMHO.|
|May-03-19|| ||I Like Fish: |
I was going to do something...
then I got distracted for 5 seconds...
|May-07-19|| ||SChesshevsky: Nice tourney for Stavroula T. Should be a confidence boost which might help propel to even better results.|
