Melekhina - Forestier
Position after 9.Nbd2!?
I have annotated the game Melekhina - Forestier, which features an unusual variation of the Milner-Barry Gambit against the French Defense. WIM Alisa Melekhina has demonstrated some excellent preparation in her games at the World Junior and Girls under-20 Chess Championship in Poland, where she has started with a perfect 2-0 score. Let's hope she can maintain her stamina through this grueling 13-round tournament.
