The closing ceremony of European Individual Women's Chess Championship was held last night in „Nikola Tesla“ hall of hotel Metropol Palace in Belgrade...
GM Hoang Thanh Trang (2467) is the new European Champion for 2013! She drew with Viktorija Cmilyte in the last 11th round and won the Championship with 9 points out of maximum 11. The curiosity is that Hoang Trang is the first woman to win both Asian and European Individual Women's Championships.
The leader Hoang Trang defeated Alexandra Kosteniuk with black in the 10th round of European Individual Women's Chess Championship. It seems Kosteniuk had a bad day, and practically beat herself. She chose a strange sequence of moves, which Hoang punished right away and now she has a full point advantage over the following players, since the other important matches were drawn...
Hoang Trang drew with Salome Melia today, again in an endgame, just this time, unlike the others, with a peaceful outcome. Melia with this draw gained her second GM norm in 9 rounds and rating performance of 2641 points.

Trang welcome and congratulations for the title!
The other day you were my guest here in the press center, and you told me that nothing is clear until the last move in the last game is played, so now since the tournament is over, how do you feel and what are your impressions?
Hoang Thanh Trang
I was absolutely right about that, because today, as everyone could see, on the first 2 boards we fought very hard, and I had a very difficult game today. I managed to draw, so now I am very very happy.

Nadezda Stojanovic
Of course this title means a lot to you, but will it change anything in your life?
Hoang Thanh Trang
I have been playing chess for almost 30 years, so with this title, it is like a dream come true. I think with this title, I can continue chasing my another dream, and that is to become a World Champion.

Nadezda Stojanovic
What are your impressions about the whole tournament, in general? Are you satisfied with your play and how it all went?
Hoang Thanh Trang
It was a very tough tournament. Here among the participants are many great and talented players. And I think there is not much difference between the players, and mainly, it is just a battle in your mind. So I feel that through the tournament I could keep calm, and keep my balance.

Nadezda Stojanovic
What do you think about position of women's chess, and how can it become more popular, are there any ways in which we can all contribute to this?
Hoang Thanh Trang
I think this tournament is a very good example, because here organization was great, it was very professional and we had amazing conditions.

Nadezda Stojanovic
Who is your favorite chess player?
Hoang Thanh Trang
Since I was little girl, I always loved Judit Polgar and Vishvanatan Anand. Lately, like everyone else, I became a fan of Magnus Carlsen. How it is difficult for me to choose whom I will support more.

Nadezda Stojanovic
Are u supersticious? Do you have some special ritual before the game, do you believe in certain power of some certain objects, like necklace or pencil?
Hoang Thanh Trang
I am not extremely supersticious, but yes, like any other chess player I am supersticious in some way. If I have a lucky pen or a lucky jacket, I won't change it.

Nadezda Stojanovic
What are your plans for the future?
Hoang Thanh Trang
I will just keep training and I will try to continue in this manner. It turned out that I am on the right path, since I won this tournament. I will take some rest, and after I will chose some Open tournament to play.

Nadezda Stojanovic
