The composition of the teams and other materials regarding the tournament

There are two interesting details: Valentina Gunina will again represent the women's team Moscow  ("ShSM") , while the current champion of Russia - the club Ladya from Kazan will not participate at all. These two details are interconnected: Gunina has played for Ladya at this year's Russian championship, however, it turned out that the head and the member of the team Alisa Galliamova is not able to fly to Eilat, so the team also won't fight for the European Cup. Gunina was invited by another team ShSM and she accepted the invitation. Let us remind you that in the interview Gunina gave to our website in Spring Valentina admitted she had disagreement with the Moscow federation because of the default in payment. 

So, now the Moscow team will be represented by: Valentina Gunina, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Ekaterina Kovalevskaya, Alina Kashlinskaya, Anastasia Savina. The club Monaco is considered to be the favourite of the competition as long as three strongest players of the world, except Judit Polgar, will play for it.
