|Dec-23-11|| ||knighterrant999: Kids are the future of American chess. Well, except for expatriated foreigners. Maybe USCF should send expatriates to more events.|
|Dec-23-11|| ||Ladolcevita: It seems now our most significant round should be the one vs India after the amazing perfect win vs Russia...|
Turkey is indeed a wonderful country,I remember somewhere reading a line,something like:If one has ever witnessed those splendid ages of Turkey,they would never find a better place than Turkey.
I believe your country wouldnt be lonely for there are many people that really appreciate Turkey:)
|Dec-23-11|| ||onur87: <lodelcevita> <waustad> Firstly my dear friends, excuse me for my awful english. we arent great chess country but we are improving. And if i talk about my country :), certainly i cant be neutral :). But i invite everybody here and i hope you like us and my country. Thanks..|

|Dec-24-11|| ||shivasuri4: After 5 rounds,China leads with a perfect score of 10.India remains in sole second with 9 points,but are yet to play some of the stronger opposition.|
|Dec-24-11|| ||polarmis: Here's my report on Round 5: http://whychess.org/node/3588|
It was pretty amazing, especially that the Russian players were worse early on with both colours and barely had a chance. It might be as Natalia Pogonina says that it's a tough time of year to be away at a team chess event.
|Dec-24-11|| ||waustad: The Russians took it out on India today. 3-1. The Kosintseva sisters both drew but Pogonina won and Gunina beat Tania Sachdev.|
|Dec-24-11|| ||waustad: Since China also won 3-1 they've extended their lead over India and Georgia, who drew with Ukraine.|
|Dec-25-11|| ||shivasuri4: So after 6 rounds,China leads with 12 match points,followed by India on 9 points and the duo of Russia and Georgia on 8.|
|Dec-25-11|| ||waustad: Kubra Ozturk scored another upset today by beating T. Kosintseva.|
|Dec-25-11|| ||waustad: After 7 rounds it is 14 for China and 11 for India. The remainding matchups are: China vs Ukraine and China vs India and India vs Georgia. I don't expect to see Ukraine beat China, but it would lead to aan interesting ninth round.|
|Dec-26-11|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Well, so much for the excitement over the gold medal. China is the winner.|
|Dec-26-11|| ||tamar: China wins, despite losing to Ukraine today 2.5-1.5|
|Dec-26-11|| ||notyetagm: <tamar: China wins, despite losing to Ukraine today 2.5-1.5>|
Yes, because India lost to Georgia 3-1.
|Dec-26-11|| ||tamar: <notyetagm> That explains Natalia Pogonina's posting.|
Russia can catch China theoretically in board points if things go their way in the last round, but China still wins due to more match victories. http://wwct2011.tsf.org.tr/en/compo...-
|Dec-26-11|| ||tamar: Chessdom explains it a bit more clearly.
Russia can actually match China if they win in the last round, and China loses.
But the tiebreak goes to China.
|Dec-26-11|| ||Penguincw: Bets open:
WWCT Rd 9: CHINA vs INDIA
WWCT Rd 9: RUSSIA vs ARMENIA
|Dec-26-11|| ||waustad: Wow, Zhao Xue lost to Zhukova today. She is at 6-2-0, but since the rest of the games were drawn, it was costly. Also, the last round starts much earlier, at 10:00 Turkish time which is 4:00 AM EST.|
|Dec-26-11|| ||waustad: Turkey got Greeced today.|
|Dec-27-11|| ||Calar: What happened to Russia-Armenia match? 4 quick draws?|
|Dec-27-11|| ||waustad: <calar>Yes. Sometimes I think that they shouldn't rate team events, but results like Ozturk's need to be rewarded.|
|Dec-27-11|| ||Ladolcevita: Congratulations to our team!What a remarkable performance!|
|Dec-27-11|| ||Penguincw: China won against India. I would like to thank Zhao Xue for her win that saved me a fortune. |
