Hou Yifan vs Cristobal Henriquez

Antartica will be one of the venues for a 4-game match between Hou Yifan, the world's no. 1 female player, and 19-year-old Chilean talent Cristobal Henríquez. The event runs from 5-10 February and starts in Punta Arenas at the southern tip of Chile before moving to Antarctica, weather permitting! In chess terms the match provides Hou Yifan with an opponent of a very similar style to Mariya Muzychuk, who she faces in the Women's World Championship match in March. Cristobal, in turn, not only gets to take on a world class player but will be able to train for future knockout matches. He already made a name for himself by eliminating Boris Gelfand from the 2015 World Cup in Baku. Official website: www.ajedrezantartico.com
