  whiteshark: The final position is worth a diagram

The cross protection of ♘♘'s is only fictive.

Jan-25-08  jonnymalk: Sargissian is out of form in this tourny but Hou's win with black is still an achievement nonetheless.

At around moves 17-18 I was expecting white was getting to put immense pressure, but no.

  Calli: Sarge looks clueless. 35.b3? creating another passed pawn can't be right and what is that knight doing at b4?
Sep-27-08  Sularus: beaten by a little girl.

youngest femal GM in history though.

Dec-09-16  j4jishnu: splendid match. lovely. lovely. god bless female grandmasters.
