Battle of the Sexes, Round 1: A clear win for team Pia

Round one of the #GibChess Battle of the Sexes Tournament, held at the Gibraltar Garrison Library on Monday 24 January, got off to a pulsating start as the team of women’s players, dubbed “Team Pia” after their captain, GM Pia Cramling, scored a big win over “Team Sabino”, as the men’s team is now known, with four of the ten women’s players scoring wins against their male adversaries, with only one male player able to win in reply. The first player to win a game was Olga Girya (pictured) who defeated Joe Gallagher in a King’s Indian. | Photos: John Saunders
