|Oct-13-16|| ||PhilFeeley: I'll root for Kosteniuk this year. She did fairly well at the Olympiad this summer.|
|Oct-14-16|| ||Mr. V: I say it's about time Goryachkina showed her stuff.|
|Oct-14-16|| ||technical draw: <Mr. V> Now I know who dropped 5 bills on Gory in the chessbookie game.|
|Oct-15-16|| ||mathlover: who are the players here ?|
|Oct-15-16|| ||Nerwal: Line-up : Aleksandra Goryachkina, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Natalija Pogonina, Valentina Gunina, Olga Girya, Alisa Galliamova, Anastasia Bodnaruk, Evgenija Ovod, Daria Pustovoitova, Alina Kashlinskaya, Ekaterina Ubiennykh, Daria Charochkina.|
|Oct-15-16|| ||Mr. V: <technical draw> Actually I would never make such a risky bet. I only wish it would happen. Have no idea who in their right mind would actually take those odds.|
|Oct-16-16|| ||mathlover: thanks Nerwal|
|Oct-18-16|| ||notyetagm: Gunina won today, after starting 0-2.
Her plan is to win all of her remaining games and take the title, just like she did in 2014.
|Oct-18-16|| ||Annie K.: <Gunina won today, after starting 0-2>|
She's employing the Topalov Tournament Gambit. ;)
|Oct-18-16|| ||whiteshark: Only 5 draws out of 18 games so far|
|Oct-18-16|| ||notyetagm: <Annie K.: <Gunina won today, after starting 0-2> She's employing the Topalov Tournament Gambit. ;)>|
We call that the <SWISS GAMBIT> in the US.
But someone needs to tell Gunina that it really doesn't apply to close round-robin events. :-)
|Oct-18-16|| ||Annie K.: That's why it's the Topalov Gambit rather than the Swiss... he's done it in closed round-robins too, several times as I recall. ;)|
|Oct-20-16|| ||HeMateMe: Go Natalie, in second place!|
|Oct-23-16|| ||Mr. V: After seven rounds, Kosteniuk in the lead, Girya and Pogonina chasing, Gunina with all decisive games, and Goryachkina with a boring +1 score. Nobody is surprised.|
|Oct-24-16|| ||et1: Any explanation to the fact that in this tournament in 8 rounds we have 33 decisive games and 15 draws whereas in the men's tournament we have 13 decisive games and 35 draws ? Super GMs know how to draw more and are harder to beat ?|
|Oct-26-16|| ||whiteshark: Congratulations to Alexandra Kosteniuk for winning <The Superfinal of the 66th Russian Women's Championship> with a lead of 1.5 points before the final round.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||HeMateMe: She regains the title.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||AylerKupp: <et1> The average rating in the men's tournament was 2684 and in the women's tournament 2441, a significant 243-point Elo rating point difference. If in order to win or lose a game mistakes or at least inaccuracies must be made by at least one of the players, the chances for a mistake are greater the lower the players' playing strength. Hence, the chances for decisive games should be (much) greater.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||AylerKupp: And congratulations to Pogonina for second place thanks to a great recovery after consecutive stumbles against Ubiennykh and Charochkina.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||HeMateMe: yes, Natalie won two of her last three games to get sole possession of second. A fighter!|
