Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-05-16  waustad: I'm bummed to see Cramling at -1, but impressed at how well the Indian ladies are playing.
Jul-06-16  Mr. V: until one of the new youngsters proves to be a more competitive rival to Hou Yifan, women's chess is going to be sad without her.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sokrates: Now that the strongest of them all, the world champion Hou Yifan, doesn't want to compete with them anymore (after experiencing the conditions at the match in Ukraine), it has become a bit indifferent who gains the title in the end. It's like in the heydays of Judit P. who probably still could give it a go, if she would.

  whiteshark: <After round four of the Women's Grand Prix in Chengdu, China, which takes place from 1st to 15th July, the Indian Grandmaster Humpy Koneru leads with 3.5/4. In round four she played against Tan Zhongyi from China and won her third game in a row. The other decisive game of the round was Ju Wenjun's victory against Pia Cramling. The four other games of the round all ended in a draw.>

cb pictural report for rd 1-4:

Jul-06-16  posoo: there are SOM who say dat WOMAN shod not eveen PLAY chesse. I think dat dis is WRONGHEADED. Urone is capable of doing da ocasional SMASH from time to time. I do NOT SEE why da woman dos not make it into da top eshalons, but i SUSPECT it is becas most chessmen are LOOMING WULVES who salavate over da woman and make them saw EW.

Just look at all da comments on da female players' pages! many of them are like "OOOH SHE TASTY."

Da posoo dos NOT condone objectafaction.

Jul-06-16  posoo: LOOK in paticular at da comments on STEFANOVA. Evryone is wondring WHY she is not MARIED. do peeple make da same questions about MEN? OF CORSE NOT. But becus she is "cute" and a "babezilla" da male kibotzers feel like they HAVE TO ASK why she aint accepting da OVATURES of da men. Is she GAY? they wonder.

maybe DATS why womans dont get as hi-rated.
