European Chess Championships: final results

Tatiana Kosintseva, the younger of the two sisters scored a phenomenal 10 points of 11 to win the European Women's Chess Championship by 2 clear points. She conceded just two draws (one of those in 10 moves to her sister).

Her elder sister, Nadezhda Kosintseva, finished joint second on 8 points with Antoaneta Stefanova and Hoang Thanh Trang.

Sophie found the going incredibly tough against opponents rated some 400-500 points higher, but had some near misses and hopefully will learn a lot from the experience and come back stronger next time.

The men's event was much closer with 7 players finishing tied first on 8 points. According to the official website, Vladislav Tkachiev who resides in France is the winner on tie-break.
