This 19-year-old had a very successful career right from the start winning her first European Championship title at the age of 10!
Afterwards she won silver in World Youth Championship, two medals in European Team Championship and last year won her last youth event and became a European Champion under 18!
Her young age doesn’t stop her from challenging the very top players at all!
Last year she beat IM Anastasia Bodnaruk in the very first round of our Match in a beautiful style. She was awarded a prize for the most beautiful game of the tournament for this win.
Alicja is also a Polish Women vice-champion in blitz, which will definitely be helpful in the blitz match!
