|Apr-12-07|| ||percyblakeney: I can't imagine anyone expecting another result between them, the Kosintseva sisters always draw quickly when they have to play each other.|
|Apr-12-07|| ||Troglodyte: Kind of sad. Wouldn't they show more respect for eachother by playing their best? I guess it can't be helped, it's all about results.|
|Apr-12-07|| ||capablancakarpov: Yes, for example Tatiana Kononenko and Oleg Korneev are married, and in the Elgoibar Close Tournament, Korneev needed a win in the last round to tie for first, and the adversary was his wife! Anyway, after a fought game, they drew. That is respect for the game.|
|Apr-12-07|| ||percyblakeney: Kosintseva won 7 games in a row, and played 126 moves yesterday. When she then has one single short draw, against her sister, I find it rather understandable...|
|Apr-12-07|| ||Troglodyte: It's not just drawing in this tournament, apparently they refuse to play a true game of chess against eachother.|
|Apr-12-07|| ||percyblakeney: <apparently they refuse to play a true game of chess against eachother>|
They do like this in tournaments, yep.

What an inspiring example of respect for the game. RB Ramesh, a GM and GB Prakash, a strong IM with 3 GM norms (brothers)when playing for their GM norms specifically requested they not be paired against each other so that there wouldnt even be a smidgen of doubt about their achievement.
|Apr-12-07|| ||PhilFeeley: <Tactic101: What would you expect? Anyone have any good games among the Polgar sisters which don't end in a draw?>|
Judit Polgar vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1992
Judit Polgar vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1993
Judit Polgar vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1993
Zsuzsa Polgar vs Judit Polgar, 1993
Judit Polgar vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1994
Zsuzsa Polgar vs Judit Polgar, 1994
They started out with draws in the early years but Judith soon dominated.
|Apr-13-07|| ||percyblakeney: Lahno is having a so-so tournament, losing with white to Atalik and Lomineishvili, both rated just below 2400.|
|Apr-13-07|| ||Wild Bill: Tatiana Kosintseva has just defeated Ekaterina Atalik in 55 moves.|
She cinches at least a share of first prize in Dresden; depending on the outcome of the Hoang-Korbut game, she may have won the event outright going into the final round tomorrow.
|Apr-13-07|| ||virginmind: bravo to sabina francesca foisor, she now has 7 points!|
|Apr-13-07|| ||alexmagnus: <She cinches at least a share of first prize in Dresden; depending on the outcome of the Hoang-Korbut game, she may have won the event outright going into the final round tomorrow.> Do they play 11 rounds? Not 12?|
|Apr-13-07|| ||percyblakeney: Only one round to go, and Tatiana Kosintseva has already won since Korbut lost her game today.|
|Apr-13-07|| ||THE pawn: That makes her european champion?|
|Apr-13-07|| ||keypusher: <PhilFeeley> Wow, those Polgar-Polgar games you posted were battles. All decisive, and I don't think any of them was under 50 moves.|
|Apr-13-07|| ||Wild Bill: <THE pawn: <That makes her european champion?>>|
Yes. Tanya has a point and a half lead going into the final round.
|Apr-14-07|| ||barbababa: <Wild Bill>They also played a seven move draw in Russian Women's Chess Championship Superfinal 2006.|
|Apr-14-07|| ||percyblakeney: Very impressive by Tatiana Kosintseva, with nothing to play for she pressed for the win also in the last round and won with black against Lomineishvili after 70 moves. So she finished with 9 wins and 2 draws in 11 games.|
|Apr-14-07|| ||dehanne: I am sure her performance is good for at least one GM norm?|
|Apr-14-07|| ||percyblakeney: <dehanne> I think her performance is around 2800 but she hasn't played any GM's, so no norms. She'll surely be a GM sooner or later anyway, she's stronger than for example Hoang that finished far behind and is a "real" GM.|
|Apr-14-07|| ||Wild Bill: <barbababa:>
I know. They also played a seven move draw in the North Urals Cup in July.
I believe I saw on ChessBase yesterday that Tanya's PR in Dresden was 2749, but that mihgt have been through 9 rounds.
|Apr-14-07|| ||percyblakeney: <Wild Bill> 2774 is apparently what she ended up with, none of the male players had a higher performance rating.|
|Apr-15-07|| ||Hot Logic: Tatiana and Nadezhda have said in a ChessCafe interview ( http://www.chesscafe.com/text/misha... ) that they will not compete against each other.|
Considering how both of them are playing, playing against each other for a draw was probably more beneficial to their opponents than it was to them.
|Apr-22-07|| ||percyblakeney: As in the men's tournament the difference in opponents gets so big that it's almost as if the participants play different tournaments. Among the players sharing fifth on 7.5, Atalik faced seven of the top ten ranked players, while Cmilyte's strongest opponent was ranked #34.|
|Apr-22-07|| ||Eti fan: The game of Stefanova against Houska was very nice. http://featuredgames.chessdom.com/a.... After the game I thought Eti is going to win the title. But she never got a chance to play with Tatiana. A win against her in the middle of the tournament would have changed things a lot. I hope Eti shows her real strenght at the world cup.|
