Memorial of Krystyna Holuj-Radzikowska Women's Tournament


The 1st Women International Chess Tournament – Memorial of Krystyna Holuj-Radzikowska

We organise this tournament to honour WGM Krystyna Holuj-Radzikowska (1931-2006), who was nine times Polish Champion (1951, 1952, 1953, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1959, 1966, and 1969) and to promote a development of young Polish women chess players.

Amongst titled players from Romania, Belarus, Slovakia, Belgium, Germany and Poland, there will be 3 Polish girls: Anna Iwanow, Monika Gluszko and Maria Leks.
