  Boomie: Pairings for round 8

Mar-10-12  waustad: Another win by Cmilyte. Now she has 6 wins, 2 losses and no draws.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Muzychuk beat Trang with black today to joint the leaders. Currently, 3 are tied for first, 3 just a mere half behind and 8 are a full point back, it's going to be a tight one.

  Boomie: Pairings for round 9

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Is round #9 the last round of the tournament?
Mar-11-12  virginmind: no, there are eleven rounds.
good luck cristina today against anna!
Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Thank You.

  cro777: After eight rounds, the Turkish youngster, 14-year-old Hilal ÍZT▄RK, rated <1784>, has become a real upset for Russian players.

She defeated WIM Aleksandra Goryachkina (2341), IM Anastasia Savina (2325), WGM Sandugach Shaydullina (2197) and WIM Elizaveta Bronnikova (2252).

Eleven! That makes sense then, since it's up to Mar.13. :)

  Penguincw: Muzchuk-Foisor

We could see double queenside castling.

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Muzychuk seems to have a won position (move 47). If so, she will have the lead with 7.5/9.

V.Cmylite just won. She is now at 7/9.

Mar-11-12  virginmind: yes, muzychuk won, foisor even seemed stuck in her belief for a draw, pushing the resignation a bit too long in my opinion - but its somewhat understandable, at least as long as there was the prospect of a k+r vs. k+r+b ending...good fight anyway and, all along, cristina has played above all expectations in this championship so far (rating-wise)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: The tournament is still tight, even if one person is first.

  Boomie: Pairings for round 10

Mar-12-12  kia0708: Marie Sebag is going down like a submarine boat :-(

Just played was 20.Bc2, which hits the queen, and discovered attack on the pawn on a5. The knight on b4 is also pinned in two directions.

Mar-12-12  Harvestman: What a bloody day! 13 decisive results on the top 14 boards.

Looks like Anna Muzychuk is pulling clear now though.

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: In the eighth round Kateryna Lahno missed a win in a basic ending against Elina Danielian.

Position after 68.h8=Q+

According to tablebases White mates in 26.

However, in the game Danielian managed to defend and the game ended in a draw after 110 moves.

Position after 107...Ka8

108.Kc6 (108.Qe5 mates in 13 moves) 108...Rb6+ 109. Kc5 Rb5+ 110. Kxb5 1/2-1/2

Mar-12-12  dumbgai: The tournament is 11 rounds, right? So Muzychuk has clinched at least a tie for first, and needs just a draw to win outright?
Mar-12-12  Billy Vaughan: That is correct. I think Gunina at least has a chance to win on tiebreaks though.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: That Muzychuk is one heckuva chick.

Cmilyte seems to have faded just a bit at the end.

Mar-13-12  virginmind: a lot of games with over 50-60 moves in this championship...these women are real fighters.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: I hate quick draws, and this event doesn't seem to have that problem.
