Moscow beats St. Petersburg at 100th anniversary encounter

Moscow beats St. Petersburg at 100th anniversary encounter
Last week, St. Petersburg hosted the traditional and historic match between Russia`s two greatest cities: Moscow and St. Petersburg. The first such chess match was held 100 years ago – in 1911, after which 21 more meetings have taken place. After a five-year break another was finally held, promising to be an annual event thanks to the sponsorship of “Gazprom”.
