Anyways, go Natalia!

  HeMateMe: How does the scoring work here? 1 point for a victory, add them up at the end, or is each round a victory, unto itself?
Jul-05-12  fref: <HeMateMe>: We just add the individual points

  HeMateMe: Thats interesting, the score breakdown, per Natalie P. The Russian men had a slight edge in classical, then really clobbered their opponents in Rapids.

The Russian women were down a few points in classical, but lost just one further point in rapids.

I wonder why the Russian team, on the whole, excelled at Rapid Chess?
