|Oct-18-10|| ||Octavia: after 2 days 4 teams haven't lost any games. 14 teams are playing.|
|Oct-20-10|| ||turbo231: Alexandra Kosteniuk won the Womens World Championship nearly 2 years ago. She is scheduled to defend her title sometime in December.|
She needs to play in more tournaments to get back into shape. In the last 2 years she has played in a very few tournament, one or 2 full tournaments. She needs to play in more if she wants to retain her title. And she has only a short time to do it.
|Oct-21-10|| ||Octavia: I've just seen an interview with Maya who took a full year break from chess only to come back & beat everybody! It's not always true that you play better by playing more. :)|

|Oct-21-10|| ||Octavia: K. Arakhamia-S. Melia: White won a nice game with some brill tactics.|
|Oct-21-10|| ||HeMateMe: Who will play Kosteniuk? Is there a Candidates tournament, or a set of elimination matches? I have a hard time keeping up with the rule changes in chess.|
|Oct-21-10|| ||percyblakeney: <I have a hard time keeping up with the rule changes in chess.>|
No big change in the women's cycle, it's the same knockout as in the five latest World Championships.
|Oct-24-10|| ||whiteshark: <The 15th European Club Cup for Women saw a dramatic finish as three teams were in competition for the prestigious trophy before the last round. In the end, both matches on the top two tables ended in 2-2 tie.|
Cercle d'Echecs de Monte Carlo played AVS, who appeared to be without chances for the first place because of the low sum of individual scores. Nevertheless, the Russian team tried their best to defeat the defending champions. WGM Anastasia Savina scored against IM Almira Skripchenko, but Yifan Hou struck back and won against Natalia Pogonina. The other two games were drawn and the match finished 2-2.
St.Petersburg Chess Club and Giprorechtrans also signed a victory each, and the other two games were drawn. Finally, Cercle d'Echecs de Monte Carlo and St.Petersburg Chess Club shared the first place with 10 match points each, but Monte Carlo had a slightly better individual scores and were awarded the winners' trophy.
Mika Yerevan beat the young Lokomotiv 2000 with a crushing 3.5-0.5, which was just enough to equalise Giprorechtrans' match and individual points. Only on the third tiebreak criteria Mika edged the opposition and claimed the bronze medal.
Congratulations to the winners!>
