  virginmind: it must have been dire today for the russian team captain to watch tatiana playing 112.Rh7 (instead of h7)...not to mention struggling after that for 45 more moves to get an ilusionary win.

  Maatalkko: It's like the U.S. board 2 is a Super Smash Bros. character with a special move. Except instead of "Falcon Punch!" it's "Irina Krush!"

  HeMateMe: Kat Lahno played a 157 move draw against T-Kos, and the Ukranians held Russia to a 2-2 tie. The T sister had all the winning chances, but couldn't get the full point.

That's LARGE, Kat!

  waustad: Austrian women went 2 1/2 - 1 1/2 vs the Czech team. They did a lot better than the men who got squished today 0-4, also by the Czechs.
Sep-06-12  weisyschwarz: Krush could have won again today...against Maria Muzychuk, but missed the move.

  HeMateMe: Russia pounded India, 3-1. Wins by Guinna and Kosteniuk. No Humpy in this event? They could have used her in that match.

Yifan won a nice tactical ending against France's Skripchenko.

Sep-07-12  dumbgai: China losing to...Kazakhstan. Down an exchange+pawn on board 4 and equal positions on the others.
Sep-07-12  dumbgai: Well, China didn't lose but were held to a draw despite having a 300-Elo advantage on all four boards. Russia takes the lead by defeating Armenia.

  virginmind: romania wins 3.5-0.5 against the netherlands and we have a chance to finish in top 10. good luck tomorrow against whoever it will be!
Sep-07-12  niemzo: Russia hasn't taken the lead. They remain in second place since they are tied with China and they have a worse tiebreak.

Sep-09-12  niemzo: A worthy victory after a fascianting tournament. They were a couple of hard moments but your team managed to come through. Congratulations!
Sep-09-12  joupajou: Congrats, Natalia! Wonderful olympics, great games.

I was just wondering, in game 7 vs Anna Ushenina, what was your "master plan" with move 29... Rc8?

Sorry if this has already been discussed, I'm way too lazy now to read all earlier kibitzing.

Once again: congrats! You're my hero!

  optimal play: Congratulations to Russia on winning the Gold. Also a consistent effort by Australia who came into the tournament seeded 50th and finished 50th! They were part of a large group on 12 points which included Greece who finished further up the ladder at 40th, and Slovenia who was seeded 16th.
Sep-10-12  Ladolcevita: Congratulations to Russian women team on winning the gold medal!

Well,if only China had not tied Kazakhstan 2-2 in the penultimate round,whom Russia had defeated 4-0 in the final round...but of course it is not a question of any single round,Russia did perform a trifle better on the whole.
