Dec-24-10  Albertan: Pretty risky playing the Sicilian Dragon in a game like this isn't it?
Dec-24-10  Albertan: This is how they will decide who become the new FIDE Women's World Chess Champion today:

Four 25m + 5psm games followed by a pair of 5m + 10spm games if required followed finally by a 5 minute to 4 minute sudden death game with 3 seconds per move after move 60 with black receiving draw odds.

Dec-24-10  Albertan: Deep Rybka suggests that Lufei has insufficient compensation for the pawn:

Dec-24-10  Ezzy: These rapid games are of extremely poor standard.

I suppose they're rather exhausted at this moment. Survival of the fittest It seems.
