    International Grandmasters Ruslan Ponomaryov and Zahar Efimenko are getting prepared for tournaments in Kaissa

    Everyday trainings interchange with sunbathes and sport games. They treat «Kaissa» as their home. They are loved and awaited here. First they came to «Kaissa» when they were just boys. But the hotel stuff likes them not because they are good at chess but for their warm and peaceful character and for responsiveness to people. And, probably, not everybody knows that they adore children.
