The doors of a new episode in the history of the Russian National Championship are open today. One woman, 23-year-old Alexandra Gorichkina, marks a milestone by becoming the first woman to compete against men. Russia’s LXXIV CN will be held in Ufa from today until October 20, which will be attended by 12 strong grandmasters, including five elites whose Elo has more than 2,700 points. Perhaps the most likely to be crowned are Dmitry Andriken, Nikita Vitogov and Andrei Espenko.
The raffle was not in Gorichkina’s favor. Luck gave him the number eleven, which means he will run the black pieces six times and the white pieces five times. Goriya finished third out of 54 players in the Russian Superior League and qualified with 6 points (+5, = 3, -1) and 2,714 points. His defeat was exactly the same against Paul Pancreatov, who won by 7 points, which he is facing today in the first round with black pieces. This is revenge. Goria made 6 Mak like Maxim Chigayo.
The sequence of Goryahkachkina (2.602) is as follows: with black: round 1, against Pankrátov (2.659); R-3 Kiril Alekseenko (2,710) R-5, Andrei Espenko (2,720) R-7 Maksim Chigaev (2,639) R-9 Vladimir Fedosev (2,704) R-10 Max Matlákov (2) , 682).
And he will play with the whites: R-2 Alesander Motylev (2,624) R-4 Nikita Vitiugov (2,727) R-6 Aleksandr Rakhmanov (2,657); R-8 Aleksander Predke (2,666) and R-11 Dmitry Andreikin (2,728).
Today, in the first round, they will face Anderkin-Matlokov, Motilev-Fedosev, Alexenko-Predke, Vytogov-Chigayov and Espenko-Rakhmanov.
