*The* Kosteniuk meanwhile is in a serious slump. But then, why shouldn't she enjoy life outside of chess after winning the women's World Title.

I agree, Gunina has really impressed me.
Hope to see some great things from her in years to come.

Maybe they were worn out after this event: FIDE Women's Grand Prix (2011).

|Aug-27-11|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Yes, the sisters were too busy to participate this time. Tough schedule.|
|Aug-27-11|| ||whiteshark: <Natalia Pogonina> Do you have any theoretical chance to come first place?|
|Aug-27-11|| ||kia0708: where is Judith Polgar ?|
|Aug-27-11|| ||HeMateMe: Budapest, Hungary|
|Aug-27-11|| ||Sneaky: whiteshark, I think if Gunina loses round 9 and Pogonina wins, they would both be tied for 1st with 6/9. But more realistically it looks like Gunina will clinch first and Natalia will have to settle for 2nd place.|
|Aug-28-11|| ||stanleys: Gunina wins!Congratulations,Valya!
Congratulations also to the lowest-rated Daria Charochkina who takes the 3rd place!
|Aug-29-11|| ||checkmateyourmove: <Pogonina> is the nakamura of woman....haha Always first to criticize play but never can see her ignorance. Long live chess to give these guys a reality check.|
