PRESS RELEASE – 24 January 2012
TOP BOARD NO. 3
Michael Adams v Natalia Zhukova
One of the pairings from today on one of the top six boards in round one of the Gibraltar Masters, between Adams v Zhukova, is an exact repetition in both names and colours as that featured on the new 30p chess stamp from 2012 issued by the Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau this week.
The stamps were launched on Monday night at the first night reception where the pairings for day one were drawn by Miss Gibraltar 2011 Michelle Gillingwater Pedersen. The stamp is a set of four commemorating 10 years of international chess in Gibraltar.
The collection is available as a Set of 4 stamps, First Day Cover and Presentation Pack
These are available from the Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau online at www.gibraltar-stamps.com and www.wopa-stamps.com
