  Whitehat1963: Because she's playing the white pieces, I expect Yifan Hou will draw with Mamedyarov. I'll be amazed beyond words if she beats yet another 2700+ player.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Ezzy: Don't forget, it's 4 hours earlier the last round tomorrow.
Feb-01-12  qstone: Among the top 6 people with 7 or more points, besides Yifan, only Short Nigel managed to beat one 2700+
Premium Chessgames Member
  Harvestman: Polgar v Korchnoi looks like a fun pairing!
Feb-01-12  maelith: Lets see if Yifan can continue this. Her win against Polgar gave Yifan confidence.
Premium Chessgames Member
  gunsan: Y Hou - S Mamedyarov and J Polgar - V Korchnoi. What more can you ask for? This will be so fun! See you folks!
Feb-01-12  waustad: Polgar vs Korchnoi is one of the interesting matchups tomorrow.
Feb-01-12  waustad: This is somewhat reminischent of the "sack of Rome".
Feb-01-12  waustad: It is 4 hours earlier. Simon williams was confusing because he kept switching back and forth between GMT and CET (Gibraltar) time.
Feb-01-12  dumbgai: Beating FOUR 2700+ players in one tournament, including the last three rounds? Very impressive!
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Everything will be over by the time I get up :-(
Feb-01-12  Riverbeast: Hou's that lady?

Lovely lady....

(Hou's that lady?)

-Isley Brothers

Feb-01-12  waustad: While we ooh and aah about Hou, Ray Robson is leading in a tournament in Moscow. Another of the youngsters is making strides.
Premium Chessgames Member We're going to show Judit Polgar vs Korchnoi, 2012 live, starting at 5:00am Thursday morning. Everybody is invited--hope to see you there!

Does this mean you aren't going to show the top board in the final round of the tournament? Why is this game more interesting?

Feb-02-12  brucejavier: Let's vote!! Hou vs mame live game instead of polgar vs korchnoi.
Feb-02-12  dumbgai: Wrong time zone and sleep cycle for me: the entire round will be played while I'm in la-la land. I'm looking forward to the results though.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <brucejavier: Let's vote!! Hou vs mame live game instead of polgar vs korchnoi.>

Hou vs Mame if only because their names are more fun. Oh, and the game will decide the winner of the tournament.

Feb-02-12  brucejavier: That's right, also it would probably make history and break a few records in the women chess world, time for another women take over Judith, it's been too long.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Strongest Force: Hello fellow chess kick boxing fans. Today we have a match between two of the most aggressie and lethal strikers in the world today. Have your popcorn and snacks ready before the fight starts. If you don't you might miss a quick knock-out. Its Hou vs Shak time
Feb-02-12  brucejavier: There not showing it live on chessgames, they would rather put korchnoi and Judith.
Feb-02-12  Jason Frost: chessdom has live games up. Hou Yifan-Mamedyarov has c6 line of pirc. Mamedyarov probably playing for a win, should be double edged.

  Strongest Force: Yes, Hou wisely chose not to get in the middle of the ring and trade punches with a monster like Shak. She is instead trying the famous rope-a-dope strategy that Ali used in Africa.
Feb-02-12  brucejavier: Could you please keep updating hous games thanks Jason frost
