GM Yermolinsky - Women Chess 2023 - Part 1

Opening: A21, C28: English Opening: 1...e5 2.Nc3 (without: 2...Nf6 2...Nc6 2...Bb4 3.g3 Nf6 2...Bb4 3.Nf3 Nc6 2...Bb4 3.e3 Nf6), Vienna Game

Player(s): Maltsevskaya, Valsecchi, Osmak

While the chess world is awaiting the start of a World Championship match, there's a break in high-profile events. I took it as an opportunity to look at women's chess, which I haven't done in quite a long time. The first try wasn't entirely successful. I looked, but I wasn't sure who the current World Champion was (Ju Wenjun) and who and when is going to challenge her (there's a match going on between Lei Tingjie and Tan Zhongyi). In the meantime, where on the ongoing Grand Prix event, they say it is the third one, but who won the first two? ( Lagno and Kosteniuk, respectively). Anyway, Wikipedia helped a bit, but I'm still a bit confused about the whole thing. For the opening video of this series, I took a step back from top events and looked at the progress of a female player I recently met over the board. WGM Alexandra Maltsevskaya is 20 years old, and she may very well be the next addition to the top echelon of women's ranks. You can download the games in PGN format HERE
