Alina Kashlinskaya beat Pauline Guichard in Round 6 to take the sole lead before the only rest day in the 2019 European Women’s Individual Chess Championship in Antalya, Turkey. The top seed in the 130-player event is Aleksandra Goryachkina, with the players competing for a top prize of 10,000 euros as well as 14 places in the next Women’s World Cup. Perhaps the most memorable moment so far was Maria Gevorgyan castling illegally and going on to beat Deimante Cornette.
The 2019 European Women’s Championship in Antalya has had some of the best coverage we’ve seen yet for an official European event. There’s been live commentary each day from hosts GM Ioannis Papaioannou and IM Can Arduman, as well as regular guest appearances by the likes of GM Ivan Sokolov and IM Eva Repka.
