Sport Accord World Mind Games 2011
The Sport Accord World Mind Games were played in Beijing. It is a huge event with bridge, chess, draughts, go and xiangqi (Chinese chess). Both the men and the women competition in international draughts have top class participants. Only the absence of Alexander Schwarzman is a bit remarkable. There is also an 8x8 draughts event, but unfortunately it was ranked as a demonstration sport. The men's title was for world champion Alexander Georgiev, while Olga Fedarovich claimed the title in the women's tournament. Take a look at some highlights of the games:
