  botvinnik64: Well, at least CG has made the effort to correct an obvious (?) blunder: no Women's games? No standings? C'mon guys, we can do better than that!

  whiteshark: For the first time the Open and the Women's Championships are being held at the same time, from June 16–27, 2017, in Khanty-Mansiysk, the oil boom town in western Siberia.

R1: In the women's event, Russia and China were paired straightaway and the Russians scored an important win.

Russia took down China 3-1, while India and Georgia drew their match. I expect a very tight race between the teams I mentioned, plus Ukraine that edged the US team by a minimal margin.

The games of the women who play the main event can be found here: World Team Chess Championship (2017). This seems to be a segregated side event.

  Octavia: <segregated> sounds kind of sad. But as long as there aren't 50% in the top 100 it's fair to give women a chance to improve together!

Have you ever noticed how chess can attract women to look after aspiring kids (mainly boys), look after the catering, field arbiters etc? But when you count how many play chess that's not so good!

Yes, I hate it when people do what they like, rather than what I like.

Jun-21-17  stst: In today's Tan v Gunay, the final position looks all White, but a closer look simplifies to K+N v K, and this is quite a dead end leading to stalemate, or, the sole K just wander around. Hence 1/2 each.... What a ??

  whiteshark: R4: The women’s competition saw another success for <India>, as they overcame the team of <Poland>, rated identically. While this places them in third place, they are still a margin away from the two leaders <Russia and Ukraine.> <China> faltered once again, and were unable to overcome <Azerbaijan.>

  alexmagnus: But the existence of women's competitions is one of the reasons why there are so few women in the top 100! There is no motivation to improve upon reaching the "female top", as male top is far, far away. And male second/third tier gets less money than female top.

  alexmagnus: As for "mainly boys", that's wrong. As I already pointed out numerous times, best pre-teen girls in chess are not worse than best boys the same age. Only after reaching the teenage years they start to drift apart.
Jun-21-17  nok: In my experience, people do what they're used to, more than what they like.

I doubt that's any more true in chess than it is tennis. The presence of female-only prizes probably gets a somewhat greater number of women to compete in chess than otherwise would, but the financial rewards of chess are quite meager, for men and women both! You learn the game, and you are either one of those few who get infected by the virus, as Tal put it, or you are one of the great majority who don't. And if your infection is strong, you spend as much time and effort on chess as your your life allows -- sometimes more. Financial incentives have very little impact.

Even in a relatively rich sport like tennis, hardly anybody gets into it for the money.

Are you saying there is an equal number of prepubescent girls and boys playing chess?

Jun-21-17  nok: <if your infection is strong, you spend as much time and effort on chess as your your life allows -- sometimes more. Financial incentives have very little impact.>

That's an idealistic view; I've seen many do the extra mile of work to get the FM title so they wouldn't pay entry fees.

I think you and I define <idealistic> differently. Putting that aside, if you are right -- and I'm sure you're more plugged in to current competitive chess than I am -- (i) the phenomenon you describe affects existing chess players, rather than making new ones (ii) it would promote, rather than retard, female participation in competitive chess, because with a separate, lower standard, they could obtain an exemption more easily than men.

Jun-21-17  nok: Your points seem contradictory. If unequal rewards don't make new chess players, they can't increase female participation. They just set an expectation level.

Yeah, I don't think unequal rewards really affect participation levels. For the second point, I should have said, <To the extent there is any effect...>
