WGM Irina Bulmaga blogs from the Summer Universiade taking place in Kazan, Russia. Check out her colorful report.

July 9

Here I am in Kazan! I arrived this night and there's nothing to say but that I'm amazed!

     The Universiade Village is simply fantastic! I've felt like I'm in a cool movie. The atmosphere is so nice! I like it here a lot! I wish chess would become an Olympic Sport...

     The schedule is kind of tough- we have 3 double rounds. The first round is today, at 4pm local time. I still haven't seen the link with the starting ranking list, but I'll keep you posted.

     Here are some photos we took today:


Teodora Vasile, Raluca Sgircea and Madalina Anusca

The Universiade goes great for me so far! I've got 4p/4 and I feel just amazing.
     
The tournament is organized on a very high level- it is a pleasure for me to go to the playing hall and to play every game.
 
Here are some photos:

You can follow the results here and the live games here.
     
I won a nice game today, here it is:

Bulmaga (2403) - Munguntuul (2452), 1-0
 
We're going to have a double round again tomorrow. Normally, I'd say "Ufff, so difficult...", but I get a great pleasure from playing chess in this tournament!

Today is the birthday of my teammate- Raluca Sgircea and I'd like to wish her lots of success, love and happiness! Stay the same amazing young lady we all know you as!

LoL...we know it very well that Natalija can beat all men, women, autobots, decepticons and alien chess players in the whole universe, using her left hand,one-eye-closed... if she wants!...she would rather not ruin others' chess careers though
