Irene Sukandar-Sopiko Guramishvili Match, Jakarta 2004 

PGN 2020.03.05. 6 games. Complete.

2004.07.12-16. Match 6 rounds. 2 players.

The event was yet another delight from Eka Putra Wirya, a well known chess patron in Indonesia. It was merely a gift to Irene Kharisma Sukandar for her achievement in the Girls World Youth Chess Championship U12, a year back at Halkidiki, Greece. Irene placed herself at 6-9th and beat more experienced players en route. WFM Sopiko Guramishvili was the runner-up in the same event.

The gap of class between these two was arguably noticeable as Sopiko showed her domination throughout.

Sopiko was a student of the famous Nana Alexandria Chess School in Georgia. Nana Alexandria has played for Women World Champion crown thrice.
