Nalchik Grand Prix

The fourth FIDE Grand Prix tournament is set to take place on 15th-30th April in Nalchik, Kabardino-Balkaryan Republic, Russia. The organisers from Nalchik were hugely praised after the successful 2008 Women's World Chess Championship, which was also held there. This time they are helping in saving the remains of FIDE's failed project.

Alekseev Evgeny (Russia 2716)
