|May-07-13|| ||Petrosianic: <HeMateMe>: <When has their been a perfect score on the women's side?>|
Mona Karff did it at least once. Rachel Crotto came within a half point of doing it.
|May-09-13|| ||HeMateMe: Irina is 5-0. New breakfast cereal?|
|May-09-13|| ||schweigzwang: Oh dear, Round 5 saw two draws instead of only one. Good thing they just had a rest day.|
|May-11-13|| ||schweigzwang: Gosh there is still an error in the games list and the table from yesterday. I think game #31 needs to go.|
|May-11-13|| ||geeker: Abrahamyan-Krush shaping up as an exciting opposite-sides castling battle with mutual attacks.|
|May-11-13|| ||Kaspablanca: In the USA point of view, Americans are those who were born in the USA of have the USA citizenship, in Spanish literally it means americano, but americano is all those who were born in America, the continent, be it North, South, Central America or the Caribbean islands, the correct way to call those USA people is estadounidense but that Spanish word dont exist in English and thatīs why they call them Americans,imagine if Germans call themselves Europeans, thatīthe case that happen in America, the continent.|
|May-11-13|| ||Illogic: Krush defeats both of her main rivals with black. There can be no doubt who the class of this field was.|
|May-11-13|| ||dx9293: Well, the key game is always between Krush and Zatonskih (whenever it happens), while Abrahamyan ends up taking third place. It's the same thing every year in the US Women's.|
|May-12-13|| ||Shams: Krush can't let up though, Anna Z is rolling too.|
|May-12-13|| ||Blunderdome: Not too exciting to root for the favorites, but I enjoyed following Krush's games here, and she seemed like a class act in the press conferences. Congrats!|
|May-12-13|| ||dx9293: Congratulations, Irina!|
|May-13-13|| ||HeMateMe: Irina did the Krush rap. She rapped heads. I do think the womens event should be the same length as the mens, eleven rounds, or whatever it may be.|
|May-13-13|| ||parmetd: They are the same... both 9 rounds.|
|May-13-13|| ||HeMateMe: Then why isn't there a cash prize for going 9-0 on the women's side?|
|May-13-13|| ||Shams: <HeMateMe> The feat was judged to be much more doable on the woman's side. It's easy to spend Mr. Sinquefield's money but I agree, something like a half-size prize at least might be nice. |
After all, has any woman ever run the table? I doubt it.
|May-13-13|| ||Marmot PFL: The prize fund in the men's event is about 3 times larger than for the women. Contrast this with the US Tennis title, where they are the same even though the men's matches last from 3 to 5 sets, compared to 2 or 3 for the women.|
|May-13-13|| ||parmetd: Because both Krush and zatonskih have put up 8.5/9 scores about 6 times each. It is easy for them cause there is only ONE hard game per event: that with their rival. So instead of the odds being 1/million the odds are more like 1/2 that a perfect score happens.|
|May-13-13|| ||TheFocus: <Shams> <After all, has any woman ever run the table? I doubt it.>|
Gisela Gresser went 8-0 in 1944 to win U.S. Women's Championship.
|May-13-13|| ||TheFocus: Anna M Akhsharumova, wife of Boris Gulko, also won by a perfect score in 1987 with 9-0.|
|May-14-13|| ||Shams: <Focus> Nice work. I'm curious what both fields looked like.|
|May-14-13|| ||Just Another Master: cause nobody is gonna pay 64k to watch some chick beat these bums for 9-0 thats why!|
|May-14-13|| ||HeMateMe: <Just Another Master> and, you're kind of lonely, most weekends, right?|
|May-14-13|| ||HeMateMe: I was looking at Wiki for a crosstable, but it hasn't been submitted. They do mention that Boris' wife, Anna A. twice won the women's USSR championship. He won it once. Too bad they didn't have kids, might have given Magnus a run for his money?|
|May-14-13|| ||FSR: <parmetd: Because both Krush and zatonskih have put up 8.5/9 scores about 6 times each. It is easy for them cause there is only ONE hard game per event: that with their rival. So instead of the odds being 1/million the odds are more like 1/2 that a perfect score happens.>|
It's much more likely than on the men's side, to be sure, but neither Krush nor Zatonskih (who have each won four of the last eight championships, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._W...) has ever done it. I'd guess that the odds in any given year these days are more like 1/20.
|May-14-13|| ||Edmontonchessclub: Congratulations, Irina!|
