Many people have asked me about this new young star Nazi Paikidze. Unfortunately, I do not know much about her background. But here is an explanation from our friends at This is what GM Mikhail Golubev wrote:

“Nazi Paikidze, a young player who is representing Georgia in the FIDE ratings, and has double citizenship, is leading in the strong Russian women’s championship in Moscow.

It is now being discussed in Russian chess circles whether representatives of other federations should have the right to play in the Russian championship & cup competitions.

It can be noted that Alexandra Kosteniuk not long ago played in the Swiss championship, which is another story.”

If you know more about this young lady, please feel free to post about it.
