Gibraltar Masters 2020

From January 21st to 30th Natalia played in Gibraltar Masters, arguably the strongest regular chess open tournament in the world. This year's edition featured such top players as Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Wang Hao, Veselin Topalov, David Navara, Le Quang Liem, Kirill Alekseenko and many other notable players. In the end the tournament was won by one of the relatively underdogs, 21-year old David Paravyan, who tied with six other players for first with 7.5/10 and ended up winning the playoffs.

Gibraltar Masters is also widely known for having exclusive generous prizes for the female players. Unsurprisingly, the tournament regularly attracts some of the biggest names on the women's chess circuit. This year the female top seeds were Anna Muzychuk, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Lei Tingjie, Tan Zhongyi, Natalia Pogonina, Olga Girya, Zhansaya Adbumalik, Pia Cramling and Antoaneta Stefanova.

Natalia scored 5.5 points out of 10. On the bright side, she lost only one game and held such heavyweights as Vassily Ivanchuk and Krishnan Sasikiran to a draw playing Black. On the dark side, she lost 4 rating points and received a rather modest prize for her efforts. Tan Zhongyi won the first women's prize, scoring 7 points. Lei Tingjie came in clear second with 6.5 points.
