|Apr-21-16|| ||paavoh: Wow, Gunina and Kosteniuk with a poor start.|
|Apr-21-16|| ||sonia91: Thanks, cg.com.
From http://batumi2016.fide.com:<During the Moscow Presidential Board Meeting the decision to have a Grand Prix series with five events in total was made. Each of 20 participants in the GP Series has the right to play in three of the five events.
Current World Champion GM Hou Yifan from China withdrew from the Grand Prix cycle and she has now only one option to keep the title - to win the title again in the next Women’s World Championship with a knockout system.>
|Apr-21-16|| ||notyetagm: <paavoh: Wow, Gunina and Kosteniuk with a poor start.>|
Gunina was *demolished* by Girya.
|Apr-21-16|| ||Mr. V: If Mariya would win this it would definitely improve her image.|
|Apr-22-16|| ||stst: If Yifan does not play in the knockout, or does not win it, then let it be.
If the system does not give her any chance to play with any challenger, let it be.
Simply concentrate on all other tourneys, i.e., play with men, and gain ELO (if ever that's the common way of being recognized.)
1st task: Target for 2700+
2nd: get into the candidates - for men!!
To win it overall, i.e. to win all other men? That may be too tall an order, but, it would be a life-long goal (even though that may never be achieved!!)
|Apr-22-16|| ||Bruce Graham: Gunina mated Mariya Muzychuk. Looks like she's getting warmed up.|
|Apr-22-16|| ||notyetagm: <Bruce Graham: Gunina mated Mariya Muzychuk. Looks like she's getting warmed up.>|
"Binary" Gunina doing her thing: no draws!
|Apr-22-16|| ||dumbgai: Mariya Muzychuk experiencing the usual post-Hou match slump.|
|Apr-23-16|| ||Mr. V: Well as long as one of the sisters is doing well.|
|Apr-23-16|| ||HeMateMe: It's a Muzy sandwich! [I'd like to have a Muzy sandwich, myself...]|
|Apr-23-16|| ||sonia91: Today both Kosteniuk and Javakhishvili turned 32: http://batumi2016.fide.com/images/s...:|
|Apr-24-16|| ||waustad: That was the same day Pia Cramling turned 53.|

Girya hasn't giried yet either.
|Apr-27-16|| ||Bruce Graham: Gunina brings down Anna Muzychuk.|
|Apr-30-16|| ||Bruce Graham: Gunina brings down Kosteniuk. Her road to the top of the table has been as bumpy as a spastic's mattress.|
|Apr-30-16|| ||Mr. V: But for Gunina this is typical. The real surprise is Zhao Xue's return to form after long being unable to place near the top in a Grand Prix.|
|May-01-16|| ||siggemannen: Nice to see Gunina catching the waves again :)|
|May-01-16|| ||sonia91: Gunina wins the tournament with a round to spare, congratulations! |
I not sure, but I think this is her first victory in a Grand Prix.
|May-01-16|| ||notyetagm: <Bruce Graham: Gunina brings down Kosteniuk. Her road to the top of the table has been as bumpy as a spastic's mattress>|
That's just how Binary Gunina rolls.
One year she won the Russian Women's Championship after losing *both* of her first two games. Now a normal person would have just given up at that point but Gunina is used to winning a bunch of games at a clip and that's what she did that year at the Championship. It was almost like her 0-2 start never happened.
|May-01-16|| ||Bruce Graham: <Mr. V> <notyetagm> Yes, it seems to be her modus operandi. She beat Zhao Xue with ease to claim the tourney. She is one of the most exciting players out there: male or female.|
|May-02-16|| ||notyetagm: <Bruce Graham: <Mr. V> <notyetagm> Yes, it seems to be her modus operandi. She beat Zhao Xue with ease to claim the tourney. She is one of the most exciting players out there: male or female.>|
Yes, she is basically a female Topalov.
|May-02-16|| ||notyetagm: Russian Superfinals (Women) (2014)/Valentina Gunina is what I was talking about.|
Gunina won this tournament by a full point after losing both of her first two games by winning her last 7 games in a row. Not your typical +7 =0 -2 performance, no?
|May-03-16|| ||waustad: There are many women who seem to go for it much more than most men. The aggression I see in many womens's games is part of why I find them often to be more fun. There are of course more positional games, but, whether it is that they are more likely to be lower rated or anything else, seriously attacking games are more frequent among women than among the 2700-2800 bunch. 2500ish players don't usually take the Leko/Andersson sort of approach. I'd rather watch Viktoria Cmilyte or Eva Moser go for the throat, though neither plays much anymore.|
