Despite it, we know there's still a lot to be done. We'll work hard to keep on improving in future editions, and we hope we're home not only for young chess talents and amateurs looking to have fun playing a nice and strong @FIDE_chess rated open, but also for women players (2/2)

We've just reached 400 players! Nice milestone, but we're also proud that our work to try to improve conditions and prizes for women players, with @FIDE_chess and @chessable's support, seems to be paying off: over 60 women players from 29 federations so far, more than ever (1/2) https://t.co/dh7PHQ39zn
