The chess player from Romania Sabina-Francesca Foisor celebrated her birthday on the second day of the Championship as well. The Organizing Committee of the Championship congratulated her on her 19 birthday with champagne and a cake with candles.

Aslan Afaunov, the Chairman of the KBR State Committee on Physical Culture and Sport wished her success and happiness and presented her with a bouquet of red roses. In the presence of all those present singing “Happy Birthday” the young Romanian blew out all the candles from the first attempt. While doing it she probably thought of winning the World Championship. The time will show.

Sabina drew both games against Polish top female player Monika Socko. They will head to a tie-break to determine who will advance to the next round.

I know Sabina’s parents (both are IMs) for many years and I am happy to see her following their success.
