The participants of the annual "Snowdrops versus Oldhands" competition spent their free day differently. The organizer of the tournament Pavel Matocha suggested young players to go for skiing, however, Valentina Gunina and Alina Kashlinskaya decided shopping in Prague would be more exciting. Tania Sachdev was the only one to choose skiing.

Indian player confessed she has never skied before.

  • On the free day of the Shamkir tournament there is traditionally a football match. As last year, four teams were playing. In the semifinals, the chessplayers of Azerbaijan and the rest of the world, alas, lost to the teams of journalists and organisers/sponsors. But Magnus Carlsen played in the final as a guest for the organisers/sponsors' team, strengthening an already strong team. He was the outstanding player on the pitch.
