Yes, I thought that was supposed to be the best way for White to play the <FIANCHETTO BENKO>, with 10 ♖a1-b1!?.

Pairings/Results

Round 11 on 2014/07/17 at 13:00

Bo. No. Name Rtg Pts. Result Pts. Name Rtg No.

1 2 IM Muzychuk Mariya 2521 7½ 8½ GM Gunina Valentina 2501 4

2 8 GM Kosintseva Tatiana 2476 7½ 7½ GM Zhukova Natalia 2451 16

3 14 IM Melia Salome 2454 7½ 7 GM Danielian Elina 2458 12

Gunina wins the title outright if she wins or draws her Black game against M. Muzychuk but Zhukova (2447) and Melia (2446) both have better tiebreaks than her (2422) if she loses and they win.

Jul-16-14  waustad: A win by Melia tomorrow would get her a GM norm. That's harder to do in a women's tournament because it takes 4 playing GMs in 11 rounds, but she's already played 4 and will play GM Danielian tomorrow. She already has 2 GM norms listed on the FIDE site. Her top posted rating is 2467 but her live rating is a bit higher now.

Yes, Melia has a *lot* to play for tomorrow.

Melia wins the title if she beats Danielian, Zhukova does not beat T. Kosintseva and M. Muzychuk beats Gunina, which is all very possible. In this case there would be a 3-way tie for first at 8 1/2 between Gunina, M. Muzychuk, and Melia but Melia has the better tiebreak among those three.

Only Zhukova has a better tiebreak, at least after 10 rounds. Not sure how the final round pairings will change the tiebreak numbers.

Having worse tie-breakers after leading throughout the tournament is quite peculiar.

She drew a master in the first round before winning 7 games in a row.

Now she has drawn her last two games, against Melia and T. Kosintseva, allowing the #2 seed Maria Muzychuk to pull into striking distance by winning her last three games.

  notyetagm: New chess scandal:

<Russian Women's team out of Olympiad

7/17/2014 – Shocking news: the organisers of the Chess Olympiad in Tromsø have informed FIDE that federations that did not meet the June 1st deadline for registration had been excluded from the Olympiad. One of these is the Russian Women's team! FIDE Vice President Israel Gelfer has mysteriously blamed Garry Kasparov for this development and advocates cancelling the Olympiad.>

  whiteshark: <Russian reigning champions miss 2014 Olympiad>

"<Reigning Olympiad Women’s Champions Russia> may miss the Tromsø Olympiad after failing to submit their team line-up on schedule.

In an open letter to the World Chess Federation (FIDE) the <Norwegian organisers> explain that no exceptions can be made for a major federation like Russia, who appear to have delayed picking their team until the transfer of Kateryna Lahno from Ukraine to Russia went through.

<FIDE> has hit back, going as far as to threaten cancelling the Olympiad with only 16 days to go,

while the <Russian Chess Federation> are threatening to take the organisers to court."

Yes, that I think is *exactly* what happened: if the Russian Women had submitted their line-up by June 1, they would have had to exclude Lahno because she was not eligible to play then.

So they waited until Lahno *was* eligible to play and only then submitted their line-up.

I did not understand why the Russian men registered in time but not the women until the LAHNO FACTOR was pointed out.

Jul-17-14  waustad: The official site doesn't seem to respond now, which is a shame since they chose to make it dificult to get the games from anywhere else.

  whiteshark: I don't want to disturb the dramatic <Russian/Lagno topic> but a quick draw against M. Muzychuk secured <Valentina Gunina> the undisputed 1st place/title. CONGRATULATIONS to her!!
Jul-17-14  siggemannen: Congratulations to Valentina, once again winning the euro champs!
Jul-17-14  waustad: It looks like Zhukova and Kosintseva are the only ones wanting to take sole posession of 2nd place. Everybody else on the top boards drew fairly quickly it seems, making rather a mockery of Sofia rules.
Jul-17-14  waustad: They both got to time control with short time and Tatiana K seems to have real winning chances from my patzer's eye view.
Jul-17-14  waustad: Congratulations are also in order for Tatiana Kosintseva for an excellent game in the final round, leaving her in sole possession of 2nd place, 1/2 point behind the leader.

  PhilFeeley: <Whiteshark> <notyetagm> Re: The Olympiad - Russian problem division:

We need an Olympiad page here so we can discuss it. From what I've read on Chessbase, it doesn't look like the women's team can be excluded, since the Russians already paid for them. Presumably the deadline for the names is to allow the organizing committee to make up player signs, schedules and crosstables, etc. But surely that shouldn't be a problem with computers.

The other dispute is between Ukraine and Russia, but that one doesn't look like it'll be resolved too soon. Lahno should be able to play for whoever she likes. Didn't Karjakin make the same switch last time?

I just asked for one about 10 minutes ago.

Great minds think alike. :-)

Jul-17-14  waustad: It appears that Melia still got the GM norm, with a performance rating of 2602, even with the last round draw. Unless there are some issues like with Ju Wenjun, she should be eligible for the title when her peak rating goes above 2500. http://chess-results.com/tnr136442.... http://ratings.fide.com/title_norms...
Jul-17-14  waustad: The game Salome Melia vs Olga Girya 1-0 from round 8 seems to be missing here. Perhaps the board wasn't connected properly or something like that.

Jul-18-14  waustad: Looking at the pictures from the previous post, the only person who doesn't look happy is T. Kosintseva.
