  Penguincw: Congrats to Mary Ann Gomes for her play at the FIDE Women's World Chess Championship (2015). She entered as the 48th seed at 2354, and had to face 17th seed Tatiana Kosintseva (2483). The first 2 games were drawn, so that meant a tiebreaker was needed. The first 2 rapid games were won by black, and then white won each of the next 4 games, forcing an Armaggedon game. She had white and one extra minute, but needed a win. She forfeited on time.

Still, she gained 3.4 rating points for the classical games, and would've gained 18.4 rapid and 14.4 blitz points.

Mar-19-15  Harvestman: What a fright she gave Kosintseva! Shame she lost out to the more experienced player in the armageddon game.
