   Jan-17-17 N Grandelius vs J Xiong, 2017 (replies)
detritus: Xiong is doing a nice job of bouncing back after the opening round loss to Ragger. He's up to #5 on the live ratings list for players from the USA after the win over Grandelius, and seems like a pretty good bet to be representing the US in the '18 Olympiad.
   Sep-21-16 Mariya Muzychuk (replies)
detritus: She'll be at 2532 Elo, #8 in the women's rating list, on 1 October. The month before she won the KO championship tournament, she was at 2528/#8. Was it really all a bubble? She looked like she might have had 2600 Elo in her for a brief while, but I guess the title loss took the ...
   Aug-31-16 S Shankland vs M Kraemer, 2016 (replies)
detritus: I think 19. Bxd7 also works for holding on to the exchange, though White's position is still pretty good. When the knight vacates f6 it allows White to go 20. Be7 with tempo, setting up the 21. Bd6 skewer.
   Apr-12-16 Yifan Hou (replies)
detritus: Hou isn't listed among the participants in Batumi for the third leg of the Women's 2015-16 Grand Prix: I guess she's dropping out of the women's championship cycle, perhaps never to return.
   Mar-16-16 Women's World Chess Championship (2016) (replies)
detritus: Hou is taking part in the Norway Chess qualification tournament at the end of the month. If she qualifies (over Hammer, Grandelius, and Tari), then Norway Chess takes place from 16th to 29th of April. That overlaps with the present April 20-May 4 schedule of the third leg of the ...
   Jan-29-16 Tradewise Gibraltar (2016) (replies)
detritus: Lucky for Nakamura that he's drawn Mariya Muzychuk in Round 5, who will no doubt be hiding her own prep. :-) Kind of hoping for a Tromp or Dutch Defense in that game.
   Jan-26-16 Aleksandra Goryachkina
detritus: Ju-u-u-u-ust missed a Goryachkina-Nakamura Round 2 pairing at Tradewise Gibraltar.
   Jan-18-16 Tata Steel (Group B) (2016) (replies)
detritus: Admiraal's lucky even to have a half point. Safarli gifted him with a draw today in an ending that someone in the mid-2600s should really be able to close out in their sleep.
   Jan-04-16 Maxim Rodshtein (replies)
detritus: Rodshtein just hit 2700.0 in the live ratings with a win over Alexander Donchenko in Round 8 of the Rilton Cup in Sweden. He's sitting on 7/8, a half-point ahead of Jon Ludvig Hammer, who crested 2700 a few rounds earlier in the same tournament.
   Dec-23-15 Kosteniuk vs M Matlakov, 2015
detritus: Heh, the engine eval went from +0.55 to -0.46 after White's 26th, so its verdict is a straight-up giveaway of a pawn with no compensation.
