    The last month of the calendar has started with... the Rapid, Blitz and Solving Women National Championship, which took place in Iasi. I took all the collection of medals: a gold, a silver and a bronze ( 1st at solving, 2nd at rapid and 3rd at blitz).

     It was a really nice weekend, which I spent playing chess and hanging out with friends in the meantime.

Roxana Anton, Ioana Gelip, Raluca Sgircea and me (from right to left)

With a good friend- Roxana Anton

The diet died in that weekend for an undefined time

With Raluca Sgircea and Roxana Anton

Almost happy

    I will leave for London tomorrow and the tournament will start the day after tomorrow, with me playing vs Veronica Foisor- another friend  It is funny how no matter in which corner of the World you go- a friend is always to be found there

     You can find the details of the tournament as well as the news about it on the official site of the event. It will be a double round-robin, which means that all play against all with both colours. Here is the list of players:
1. IM Irina Bulmaga- 2396
2. IM Dagne Ciuksyte- 2345
3. WIM Judith Fuchs- 2337
4. WIM Veronica Foisor- 2216
5. WFM Sarah Hegarty- 2127
6. WGM Kruttika Nadig- 2127
     I hope to enjoy the tournament and London!
     Meanwhile, I will have to pass another partial exam for my University, tomorrow, from the airport  So, I guess- back to studying!
