  MissScarlett: The ladies are here! But not Aleksandra Maltsevskaya, who didn't turn up and was eliminated.

  Messiah: The Nurai Sovetbekova - Teodora Injac is very exciting, I can't even begin to understand every concepts and complexities in this middlegame.
Aug-07-23  ndg2: Ju was dead lost against Fataliyeva in round 3.2, but was able to turn the game around and even win it.
Aug-09-23  BvKolisch: Shouldn't <> update and correct this and all other screens here and elsewhere that continue to put Harika Dronavalli's last name as if it is the first name? I see a mix of both here and there, and isn't it really a little insulting to show so little care about a player's name? Sorry for being potentially troubling over this.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Messiah: The Ju Wenjun - Elisabeth Pähtz is more than simply interesting. The reigning World Champion against an evergreen player, who did not need a single tiebreaker game so far. Add a complicated King's Indian Defence to the blender machine, and here we go, behold a huge fight!

  Teyss: Anna Muzychuk is facing Mariya Muzychuk in 1/8th final. In their entire careers the sisters played 25 games against each other (of which 15 in classical format), all drawn. Their first game being drawn, today or tomorrow this long pacific streak will end.

It was reported the following discussion occurred in the hotel lobby:
- You have to let me win, I'm older. And anyhow I taught you Chess, you wouldn't be here without me.
- I'm a former World Champion, I deserve to win. And you were always annoying me as a kid, without you I'd be more successful now.

Good luck to... er... both of them. Unless they both forfeit?

  alexmagnus: Of the four semifinalists of the previous World Cup, three are in the semifinal now!

  alexmagnus: Goryachkina wins this year's women's world cup, after reaching the final in the previous edition.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Teyss: Congrats to Goryachkina but also to Nurgyul Salimova, who was only 29th seed and 47th in women's rating, for making it to the final and almost winning the cup during the second classical game: N Salimova vs Goryachkina, 2023

A bit like Abasov in the open tournament: less so by the opponents' strengths, more so by being closer to the title.

  eternaloptimist: I echo <Teyss>’s comments. Congrats to goryachkina for winning the World Cup women’s tournament! Also job well done to salimova for coming close to winning it. Ju wenjun the women’s world chess champ only made it to the 4th round when Elizabeth paehtz knocked her out of the tourney. Ju can’t b happy about that but she can try to redeem herself in the upcoming tourneys that she will play in
