|Sep-05-12|| ||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.|
|Sep-05-12|| ||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!"|
|Sep-06-12|| ||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!

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

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.
