|Sep-04-14|| ||notyetagm: <dumbgai: <notyetagm> Thought you might like that. ;-)>|
|Sep-05-14|| ||geeker: In Round 10 we have the titanic L'Ami-Muminova clash :) ... perhaps one of the players will manage to win a game!
Actually, I feel sorry for the bad event L'Ami is having; Muminova has made a few draws here and stabilized her performance somewhat (previous GP was dreadful).|
|Sep-05-14|| ||ljfyffe: <geeker><titanic ...clash> The Titanic sails at dawn. Which side are you on?|
|Sep-05-14|| ||geeker: Well, I sympathise with both players. Muminova has been getting pummelled the past several GP tourneys. L'Ami is appearing in her first, but it's been a disaster and she's been in terrible form. A draw would be reasonable, but I think Alina needs the win more, so I'll give her slight preference.|
|Sep-05-14|| ||geeker: This just in: L'Ami sacked a bunch of material but only had a perpetual, so the clash of the Titans is drawn.|
|Sep-05-14|| ||ljfyffe: It has been said that you only learn by losing...in which case, I should be a super-grandmaster! I'm only an average club player. GOOD LUCK TO BOTH PLAYERS.|
|Sep-05-14|| ||ljfyffe: P.S. Thanks for the info!|
|Sep-05-14|| ||dumbgai: Ju Wenjun wearing a miniskirt again, this time pink...|
|Sep-05-14|| ||waustad: Since Batchimeg Tuvshintugs drew with Hou Yifan, her performance rating is still over 2600 after 10 rounds. Even if she loses to Dronavalli Harika tomorrow, it could still be used for a 10 game GM norm. She may just sit on the norm for a while because she isn't close to the title yet. An interim goal might be to get the IM title.|
|Sep-05-14|| ||geeker: "Chimi" Tuvshintugs is a dangerous player. She beat Hou Yifan at Geneva 2013, and I recall she beat some GMs at the 2006 US Championship.|
|Sep-05-14|| ||Penguincw: Ouch! Hou Yifan has lost 7.3 rating points in the last 3 rounds, and she also trails Ju Wenjun by half a point. Luckily, she has white against Alina L'Ami tomorrow (almost a mismatch there) while Ju Wenjun has black against Kosintseva.|
BTW: I noticed that Ju Wenjun is "only" a WGM. Has she had any IM or GM norms yet? I understand that she needs at least a draw tomorrow (TPR would be 2604 then, according to FIDE) but how many norms does she have?
|Sep-05-14|| ||notyetagm: FIDE Women's Grand Prix Sharjah (2014)|
<dumbgai: Ju Wenjun wearing a miniskirt again, this time pink...>
Oh, yes! -> http://sharjah2014.fide.com/images/...
|Sep-06-14|| ||Eduardo Leon: <<ljfyffe> <<geeker>titanic ...clash> The Titanic sails at dawn. Which side are you on?>|
|Sep-06-14|| ||ljfyffe: <Eduardo Leon>I meant: which side of the ship are you on? Just joking! It's a quote from a Bob Dylan song. And Elizabeth Bishop, the deceased poet, who spent her youth in Nova Scotia, wrote, in one of her poems:"I'd rather be an iceberg than a ship" which may explain from whence Simon and Garfunkel got the idea of "I'd rather be a hammer than a nail/Yes I would/If I surely could...".|
|Sep-06-14|| ||HowDoesTheHorsieMove: <Ju Wenjun wearing a miniskirt again>|
You call that a miniskirt? Maybe in the 1920s it was.
|Sep-06-14|| ||notyetagm: <HowDoesTheHorsieMove: <Ju Wenjun wearing a miniskirt again> You call that a miniskirt? Maybe in the 1920s it was.>|
It's short enough. :-)
I. LIKE. IT!
And by the way, Ju Wenjun won the Sharjah Grand Prix on tiebreak today by drawing her last round game against T. Kosintseva.
Congratulations to Ju and her mini-skirts!
|Sep-06-14|| ||ljfyffe: Another, by the way: Victor Maymudes, Dylan's road manager for some time, use to play quite a bit of chess with his boss... Game's not just for those highly-skilled at it ...|
|Sep-06-14|| ||42eyes: 1920's miniskirt? Its a classy miniskirt :D.
Damn, i was hoping Ju Wenjun would finish at the top today.
|Sep-06-14|| ||notyetagm: <42eyes: Damn, i was hoping Ju Wenjun would finish at the top today.>|
She did. She beat out Hou Yifan on tiebreak for 1st.
|Sep-06-14|| ||42eyes: How do they decide it? They have the same amount of wins & draws. (I'm new to following tournaments)|
|Sep-06-14|| ||devere: So what is to become of the Women's World Championship 2014, scheduled to begin on October 11th, but so far with no site?!?|
|Sep-06-14|| ||HeMateMe: I'm just glad none of the girls were stoned or publicly caned for wearing mini skirts. There's hope for the Arabian Peninsula yet.|
|Sep-08-14|| ||waustad: <42eyes>There are often tiebreaks of some kind or other. It depends on the event, but here is a source that can help you with some of them (some are more often used in Swiss system tournaments): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tie-br...
Other tiebreaks can be, more blacks, more wins, more wins with black, head to head and so forth.|
In this event, the money and GP points were split, so perhaps the winner using SB or some such got the trophy, but everybody got a little trophy like memento.
|Sep-08-14|| ||42eyes: <waustad> Thanks! I did try looking up 'tie break' on wiki but I didn't find that article. It's helpful...& interesting.|
|Sep-09-14|| ||ljfyffe: <dumbgai>And all the King's horses and all the
King's men couldn't put Humpy back together again!|
