Three prodigy girls visit the Norway Chess


Round 5 first moves at the three boards were executed by three of our most talented young participants of the Open Tournament. Alina Shehzad moved for Ian Nepomniachtchi, Githiha Sathish for Alireza Firouzja and Sophie Damiano for Sergey Karjakin.

All three girls chose 1.e4 as the first move and named queen as ther favorite piece. Gitiha Sathish, who’s favorite chess player is GM Viswanathan Anand, scored 3.5 points in the blitz event, defeating some of the higher rated opponents.
