  Wild Bill: Ernesto just defeated Riazantsev in a R & P ending (74 moves).
Feb-08-08  percyblakeney: Another upset in the women's section is Olga Girya winning with black against the two years older Lahno. So after 7 rounds the top looks like this:

Muzychuk: 6.5
Bodnaruk, Girya: 6

Ushenina, Lahno, Pogonina, Krush, Zhukova and Danielian and so on seem to be too far behind but it's not over yet.

Feb-08-08  percyblakeney: Round 8 top boards:

Girya-Muzychuk
Bodnaruk-Ushenina

Elena Fatalibekova has 4/7, and won some nice games already in the 60's: M Litinskaya-Shul vs E Fatalibekova, 1969

Feb-08-08  Rottamo: I was on the venue today. I spent some time waching Nyzhnyk's loss against Grigorij. He was playing on the board 102. number of IM level players is huge here in Russia.
Feb-08-08  pawnofdoom: This is a lousy tournament for top seed Akopian. ANyone know his score? I couldn't find him in the "top list" on chessbase so I just assumed he wasn't doing so well. For his rating, at least.
Feb-08-08  ChessNe1: <percyblakeney>, how did Elena Tairova do today?
Feb-08-08  percyblakeney: <ChessNe1> She won with black against Gvetadze and shares 4-8th.
Feb-08-08  wolfmaster: How's Sutovsky doing so far?

  jamesmaskell: Sutovsky is 96th with 4/7. Its a strange system because he's drawn with loads of others on 4/7 but it separates by number of victories and also by this mysterious FIDE tiebreak. I saw this tiebreak on the Chessbase table for Corus, but I dont know how it works. Its not the same as Buchholz though. Anyone shed some light?
Feb-09-08  percyblakeney: Muzychuk is playing some odd looking Scandinavian line in round 8, moving the queen's bishop three times in the first five moves to get it back to c8...
Feb-09-08  nescio: Malakhov and Evdokimov played an unusual move order, but finally agreed on a normal looking King's Indian position: 1.c4 g6 2.e4 e5 3.d4 d6 4.Nc3 Nc6 5.d5 Nce7 6.Bd3 Bg7 7.Nge2 Nf6.
Feb-09-08  nescio: <percyblakeney> I remember this game: N Alexandria vs N Gaprindashvili, 1975, though I don't know if Gaprindasjvili invented the system. I suspect it had been around for awhile.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: I think that crazy-looking system might be of Icelandic origin:

Feb-09-08  nescio: <SwitchingQuylthulg> Well, I don't think Niephsus Thorbergsson is a great invitation to repeat the moves. I've seen better games :)
Feb-09-08  percyblakeney: It ended well for Muzychuk anyhow, and with one round to go she's leading with a full point after going +7 -0 =1.

  PhilFeeley: I don't understand this tournament. I can find neither Krush nor Sutovsky in any of their crosstables. What's going on?

  PhilFeeley: So how come neither are listed in the next pairings?

Did they get a bye or something?

Feb-10-08  percyblakeney: I think it's the first time that the transmission of the women's section seems to be working, but they only follow other games than the one that decides the winner, Muzychuk-Harika.
Feb-10-08  researchj: Muzychuk wins the tournament even with a loss in the last round, acording to the additional criteria.
