The Womens World Championship is going to be held in Ekaterinburg, Russia from 10-27 March 2006. Irina Berezina is playing. The first round draw is out and she is playing the 10th Indian WGM Subbaraman Vijayalakshmi, 2479. This will be extremely tough for her to win.
It seems to be quite a strong tournament although it is missing the top three women players, Judit Polgar, Susan Polgar and Jun Xie. It also seems to be quite an open tournament with a large number of possible winners.

It's a book, Scott.

Sorry mate, as Bazza says, it's a book. I only finished reading it yesterday. I made bold the sentence above as those 3 women figure quite prominently in the book. And part of the answer to your question lies in Chess Bitch.

Thanks Amiel, although I don't think I was asking why they were not playing, just making the observation they weren't playing. If you think the book is a good read then I will try and chase it up.
