On Tuesday, November 19th at 4 ET, Women’s Program Director Jennifer Shahade will team up with WFM Alexandra Botez against IM Anna Rudolf and photographer WFM Maria Emelianova in the first chess.com Femme Batale (rhymes with Femme Fatale.)
The match will raise money for women’s and girls’ initiatives via our own US Chess Women Program, and Chess in the Schools UK, mirroring the North America vs. Europe theme of the match. The prize pool and charity pot was kicked off in style by twitch supporter “maprail”, the beloved “chessbae94”, as well as “NikolaStojsin” and “KevinCWong.”
