  HeMateMe: I only recognize a few names, but Nona Gapri jumps out at you. Do women lose their chess powers more slowly with age than do men? She's doing quite good here, so far.

  Honza Cervenka: <HeMateMe: I only recognize a few names, but Nona Gapri jumps out at you. Do women lose their chess powers more slowly with age than do men?> Kupreichik, Sveshnikov and Vasiukov are not NNs either. To your question I would say that it is quite individual matter. Hort, Portisch, Uhlmann or Taimanov are still quite good despite of their age, not to mention late Viktor Korchnoi. If they would participate there, they would be quite probably among leaders too.

<The European Senior Chess Championship will be played in two categories: one for those who shall have reached the age of 50 (category SENIOR 50+), and one for those who shall have reached the age of 65 (category SENIOR 65+).

Players who shall have reached the age of 65 by the 31st December 2016 are allowed to participate in the category SENIOR 50+ if they request it.

Women tournaments will be played separately. If in total the women participants are less than nine they will play in the Open tournaments with separate prizes.

The championship is based on Swiss system in accordance with the ECU Tournament Rules and FIDE Rules of Chess. The playing time will be 90 minutes for 40 moves plus 30 minutes for the rest of the game with an increment of 30 seconds per move, starting from move one.

Total prize fund is 10.000 EUR, and the first prizes are 1.000 EUR (Open sections) and 650 EUR (Women sections).>

  Tabanus: There seems to be two sections, with Nona in the 65+ group:

CG mixes (50+) and (65+).

  HeMateMe: ah, a +65 group. That explains it.

Good as Nona as, I would think the other GMs might be a step ahead of her. I thought it odd that she was tied for the lead.

Jun-09-16  AlicesKnight: <HeMateMe> Hugh Alexander, writing many years ago, commented that he "... would not like to meet [Gaprindashvili] on a dark chess night...."; this from an IM. He also rated her above Menchik at her best. Interesting to see if she has the stamina as well.
Jun-09-16  Octavia: RIP Viktor Korchnoi
Jun-10-16  Mr. V: Beliavsky is too strong to play here, it seems.

  PhilFeeley: Suba's not there this year either. I wonder why.

Short should probably be here.
