Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-05-07  Astardis: What about Galliamova? She's on the team list but hasn't played a single game so far.
Oct-06-07  ChessNe1: Go Lilit!
Oct-07-07  Hot Logic: Ouch I've gone through about a dozen of these games and the way many of them end are just painful to look at.
Oct-07-07  fromoort: Humpy Koneru is on +4!
Oct-07-07  yalie: it is clear Koneru Humpy is at a different level than the other ladies.
Oct-08-07  fromoort: <yalie>Yes.
Oct-08-07  dramas79: Koneru now on 5/5
Oct-08-07  anandr: Dunno whether any of u have seen Humpy's 6th round match against Kateryna Lahno. Must admit I got totally lost in that game. Would be great if someone can share some analysis!
Oct-08-07  VishyFan: <anandr: Dunno whether any of u have seen Humpy's 6th round match against Kateryna Lahno. Must admit I got totally lost in that game. Would be great if someone can share some analysis!> I went back and saw the moves a 2nd time hoping that the correct moves will be posted by now....., but no luck....., I still see the same moves.......

The moves are the most wierd sequence of moves that i can ever dream of.., starting from 32. Qd3 by Lahno....

Any explanations/analysis would be appreciated......

Oct-08-07  anandr: I think some wrong moves have been posted. Same seems to be the case with the Sutovsky-Carlsen match too. That match is also weirder! Must be something terribly wrong in transmission of the moves.
Oct-08-07  s4life: lots of errors in the scores of many games.. <> should reload all the games.
Oct-09-07  khursh: Stefanova A. against Cramling P. reached this position

click for larger view

and Stefanova played 22.♗f6. Great move . This game worth watching.

Oct-09-07  hovik2003: Indeed 22.Bf6! is strong move that ties black's hands and feet, it sends the rook to the corner h8, and opens the way for white queen intrudion to g5 or h6.
Oct-10-07  weisyschwarz: It looks like Koneru is doing quite well.
