Jul-13-07  BIDMONFA: Ruan Lufei

RUAN, Lufei

Dec-18-10  ketchuplover: Good luck in the finals!
Dec-18-10  percyblakeney: <Highest rating achieved in database: 2199> sounds a bit low for a World Championship finalist :-)
Dec-18-10  percyblakeney: When she reached the final there had been no posts on her page for well over 3 years, and no games in the database for more than 2 before the World Championship, now that's to be under the radar...

  tamar: She made a vertical ratings leap in 2007, and then stabilized.

Now another leap is in store after these results are processed.
