GOTW: Ouellet - Beaulieu, Pere Noel, 2019

Our Canadian Game of the Week features current Canadian Women's Champion Maili-Jade Ouellet as White against NM Eric Beaulieu from the 2019 Pere Noel Swiss in Montreal, which MJ won with 4.5/5, topped by a last-round win over IM-elect Olivier-Kenta Chiku-Ratte. The win caps a good year: she won the 2019 Continental Championship in Mexico to earn the WGM title and advance to the next round of the FIDE Women's World Championship cycle, and finished the year as the 5th ranked Junior Woman in North America, and 33rd ranked in the world.
