Bulmaga dominates 9th Sharjah Women’s Cup
Quick 1-Minute Summary
The Chess & Culture Club for Sharjah Women (UAE) organized this year’s event between December 14 and December 20. A total of 120 participants from 33 countries, including 7 (w)gm’s and 13 (w)im’s.
Irina Bulmaga dominated the event, scoring an impressive 7.5 points from 9 games. Undefeated. Congrats! Irina is not as well known in the chess world as she should be, the reason for which I can not fathom.
She is really a very strong player! I have played in a number of tournaments with her and sometimes had the good fortune to play beside her…she has an aggressive style of play, good counter attack technique, and excellent opening preparation.
