Wasa SK deltar i Europacupen för damer

WGM Dana Reizniece-Ozola, Wasa SK

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

Next month our great chess club will turn 104. Yet in our history, we have never competed in any women’s event albeit we did have girls-only teams in Stockholmsserien. Tomorrow, we will therefore make history as Wasa is set to compete in the European Women Online Club Cup. Unfortunately, our two strongest female players GM Pia Cramling and IM Elisabeth Pähtz had already agreed to play for Monaco a long time ago, but we will play with

 

  1. WGM Dana Reizniece-Ozola
  2. WGM Laura Rogule
  3. WFM Jelena Andric
  4. Madara Golsta 
  5. Ramona Golsta

 

The format of the event is that there are nine groups of 8 or 9 teams that will play a single round-robin tournament. The top two teams advance to the final to be played on Monday and Tuesday. The time control is 15+5 so one match will last 30-45 minutes. Each team consists of 4 players plus one reserve.

 

We will have Zoom Watch Parties both tomorrow and on Sunday. Tomorrow, GM Tom Wedberg will be the host. On Sunday, Tom will be joined by GM Ferdinand Hellers. Maybe the lady not playing will drop in during her free round. Maybe some of Wasa’s other male stars will pop in for a while and share their thoughts. We will see.

 

We chose Zoom over streaming platforms like Twitch because we want to make it a bit of a watch party and more interactive. If you attended any of our Wasabis events you may remember that it can be quite fun to watch chess together and go through the motions of winning and losing with like-minded people whilst cheering for your club. It basically is the same as watching a football or hockey game of your favorite team. You can hop on to the call and participate but it is also possible to calmly watch without a camera or microphone. If some of our foreign friends will attend then Tom and Ferdinand will speak English, otherwise Swedish. We will be flexible. There will also likely not just be Wasa members in the call.
