Pontus Carlsson’s Birthday Tournament and Cross Culture Girls

On December 18th, Cross Culture Girls session was organized with WGM Jennifer Shahde and WGM Nadya Ortiz. It was a fun filled session as we celebrated GM Pontus Carlsson’s birthday with a special themed tournament in the Sicilian Dragon.

Apart from the chess.com club tournament, one could witness a lot of cultural exchanges throughout the session. Many of us managed to learn chess pieces in Spanish as well!
