  Sokrates: Glad to see young Carissa Yip at the top. A very promising player, who, IIRC also played in St. Louis, where she made a great impression in he play and in interviews.

  Sokrates: Where are your comments, gentlemen? Have a look at the games. Highly entertaining, many of them, particularly the victories with Yip playing black pieces. Sure, the players don't have the same level as the men, but IMO they deliver great fighting will and lively games as a very sufficient compensation.

Well done, American women, I say!

  0ZeR0: Indeed, <Sokrates>

I am not surprised by Carissa's fine performance here. I've tried to keep up with her career and watched her streams on Twitch. She has become a mighty player, and her games are often highly entertaining.

And as you mention although they are not quite at the same level as the men, they play with great fighting spirit. In my opinion, this is why I don't at all consider the Women's section of the US Championship to be a lesser event than the Men's.

It is not real chess
If you are not a family member or coach to one of the players ,why would anyone care about this event Super fans of womenís chess give off a creepy vibe ..like a Jeffery Epstein or Harvey Weinstein sort

  0ZeR0: <pazzed paun> Since you seem to be insinuating that the players in this tournament are weak, perhaps you'd care to share with us your rating and great achievements in chess?

  Sokrates: Good posts, <0ZeR0>. And my friend <moro>, of course.

Some sports are IMO more entertaining with women. Tennis and handball, for instance. More play, less slam-bam.

Not that it's worth a comment, but it beats me why someone actively steps into this room just tell the people in it that they are below his level.

  HeMateMe: Chess between 2500 players can be more entertaining than 2800 level chess because there are more decisive games. Average players like myself see more attacking, tactical motifs in these games and can learn something.

I hope you regularly watch Belgium's national championship then.

  0ZeR0: <HeMateMe> I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment. At times trying to understand why certain moves were played at the top level can leave me scratching my head. I need to be extremely thorough and conscientious in analyzing. Sometimes itís better to go for games whose instructive value is more apparent.

Belgium is fantastic country. They make the best beer in the world - sans comparation - and they were the avantgarde of cartoons in the 60s and 70s.

And what is better on a hot summer's day than sitting in a restaurant near Grand Place in Bruxelles (sorry: Brussels) enjoying fresh Moules et Frites with a cold Chimay Triple?

The country itself is an impossibility. Two very different cultures and languages which have a hard time living together, but also not want to become a part of France and the Netherlands. While enjoying your Moules you will notice that the street names are in both Flemish and French.

Many years ago my wife by then and I made an odyssey round Belgium - an unforgettable journey through remarkable constrasts. Very exciting! You should try it, <nok>. And behold, on a square in Charleroi you will find a group of grey-bearded old men sitting in the shadow playing chess. Go ahead, ask them for a game or two!

  moronovich: Mee too <Sokrates> !

Many fine memories from Brussels.
A very nice town
Et les moules - oh la la !

I watch lots of 'em. In particular I like the chinese national championship, which has a bunch of 2700 players but which seems to produce a LOT of decisive games, compared to say, an elite European tournament.

< They make the best beer in the world >

Cant argue with that.
