What on earth is she talking about? She wouldn't even be required to wear a headscarf! As to risking her life, I think she would be safer in Riyadh than at home.LawrenceCooper wrote: ↑Sat Nov 11, 2017 11:10 amFrom Facebook:

FIDE has announced World Rapid and Blitz Chess Championships to be organized in the end of this year in Saudi Arabia. First Iran, then Saudi Arabia.. wondering where the next Women's World Championships will be organized. Despite of the record prize fund, I am not going to play in Riyadh what means losing two world champion titles. To risk your life, to wear abaya all the time?? Everything has its limits and headscarves in Iran was more than enough.
In other myths, women will not need to be accompanied by a man ( sorry, Jovanka ). Passports bearing Israeli stamps will not be a problem - a huge concession, and hopefully a sign of things to come. The only remaining issue is allowing Israeli citizens to enter, which is a very delicate issue that they do not have long to sort out.
