  notyetagm: <HeMateMe: Still wish she'd change the spelling to 'Nasi.'>

She doesn't say it like it rhymes with Yahtzee, she pronounces it like Nah-zhee, according to Seirawan.

  HeMateMe: If she grew up in Georgia, central Asia, she knows full well who the Nazis were. I'm surprised that's even a first name a parent would choose, but it's her business.

  alexmagnus: < I'm surprised that's even a first name a parent would choose, but it's her business.>

"Nazi" (pronounced "nah-zee", and not Seirawan's "nahzhee") means "tender" in Georgian. And Georgians use a different alphabet, so that no collision with the far right political movement occurs. I can imagine many Georgians are not even aware of the collision since they have not so many oppostunities to spell the name in English.

  HeMateMe: We know it's pronounced differently. It's how it looks in print that raises eyebrows.

If your last name was Manson would you name your son 'Charles'?

  HeMateMe: Our ladies just beat Mongolia. Not sure if they can still medal or not.
Sep-12-16  Fish55: <HeMateMe> No, USA drew Mongolia.

  notyetagm: Should be China (18) vs Russia (16) for all the marbles tomorrow.

Russia will win the Gold only if they beat China, because then they tie at 18 MP and won the h2h.

  Octavia: the 2 grand dames of chess agreed a draw today! Pia & Ketevan or Sweden & Scottland. It was a hard fought drew 57 moves & only seconds left!
Sep-12-16  FairyPromotion: OK, this is the dream final round! The champions of the last 3 Olympiads (Russia) have a chance to land a heavy blow on the current leaders and the rating favorites of the last 3 Olympiads (China). It is a must follow match.

Reminds me of the 2012 Olympiad, where the Chinese had a 1 point lead in match points, as well as a serious lead in SB entering the final 2 rounds. Then:

Rd. 10:
Russia - Armenia: 3.5-0.5
China - Kazakhstan: 2.0-2.0

Rd.11:
Russia - Kazakhstan: 4.0-0.0
China - Bulgaria: 2.5-1.5

And the title had changed hands from China to Russia.

Will the history repeat itself? My gut says that this time Hou Yifan will make sure it doesn't, but one never knows...

  notyetagm: <Fish55: <HeMateMe> No, USA drew Mongolia.>

Draw with Mongolia was *devastating*.

If we had won, USA would have 16 MP, tied with Russia, and have a chance to be in a 3-way tie with China for 1st at the end.

Now? Nope. But we can still win Silver if China beats Russia and we win our last match.

GO USA!

Sep-12-16  dumbgai: It's a testament to China's depth that they have a 2 MP lead despite boards 2 and 3 playing far below their usual level.

  HeMateMe: china beats Russia 2.5--1.5. Draw on top board, AK v. Hou, and Pogonina won on 4th board, but China won on boards 2 and 3.

AK did her part, held off Hou Yifan, but Gunina and Goryachkina couldn't hold up their end. Changing of the guard?

Sep-13-16  chesslearner1991: Decisive results on all 10 rounds for Tania - 7 wins, 3 loses. Interesting games too.
Sep-13-16  optimal play: Congratulations to the China girls on finishing clear 1st.

Disappointing performance from the Australian ladies who came into the Olympiad ranked 54th but could only manage to finish 64th.

They certainly lost some games they should definitely have won!

But oh well, that's chess.

  HeMateMe: Is Australia's women's team homegrown, or are the ubiquitous Russian emigrants in Oz, too?
Sep-13-16  optimal play: They could have done with a couple of those ubiquitous Russian emigrants ;)
Sep-14-16  Calar: 1. China
2. Poland
3. Ukraine

Congrats to them :) Very tense and close Olympiad

  HeMateMe: Wow, Russia was knocked completely off the podium with that loss to China in the last round? That's a shocker. When have the Russian women not medaled at the Olympiad?

Congrats to the Muzychuk sisters on the top two boards for Ukraine. they didn't run off to Russia like some of their players did.

  HeMateMe: Pia got bronze on board 1!

<http://en.chessbase.com/Portals/all...>

you can't stop Pia; she's the Energizer Bunny.

Pia and her beautiful chess playing daughter;

<http://i1.wp.com/chesshive.com/wp-c...>

Pia and Satch

<https://en.chessbase.com/Portals/4/...>

Pia has a normal smile; I don't know why she never shows her teeth.

Sep-14-16  dumbgai: Despite both performing below their rating, Hou Yifan and Ju Wenjun won individual silver medals on boards 1 and 2, respectively. A consolation prize for <notyetagm>.
Sep-14-16  dumbgai: Tan Zhongyi and Guo Qi also won individual gold medals for board 4 and reserve, respectively. When 4 out of your 5 players win individual gold or silver, it's no surprise that the team would win overall. Still, it wasn't easy, with many close matches, tough games and narrow escapes.

  HeMateMe: I think India will medal next time. They seem on the upsweep.
Sep-15-16  greed and death: Gratulacje dla mojego kraju kobiet!
Sprowadziłeś chwałę Polsce!
