|Mar-13-12|| ||twinlark: <tamar>
In that case Gunina wins with a TPR of 2659, Muzychuk is second with TPR=2631 and Kosintseva, Tatiana third on 2598.
Congratulations to Gunina who must have a GM norm out of this. Wonder if she has any others?
|Mar-13-12|| ||waustad: What exactly is this?
<Buchholz cut - 1>
I found a definition of Buchholz, but does the - 1 indicate something like skipping the results of the first round opponent?
|Mar-13-12|| ||waustad: It looks like there is no Hort system for division of the prize money here. That's a 9000 Euro difference between 1st and 3rd, determined by tie breaks.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||twinlark: <waustad>
According to FIDE regs, the Buchholz Cut 1 is the Buchholz score reduced by the lowest score of the players' opponents.
Apparently, this tries to lessen the distortions caused by playing low rated players in the early rounds of large opens. There's also a Buchholz Cut of 2.
|Mar-13-12|| ||brankat: <twinlark> <Caruana is starting to chew some time on this position after <21. Bf1>:...>|
I was pretty sure Yifan Hou was to give Caruana a run for his money in their game. So far it has been the case.
Anyhow, You may have meant to post the above on the "Reykjavik Open" page.
This one is "The Women European Championship". Neither Hou nor Caruana are participants :-)
|Mar-13-12|| ||waustad: <twinlarks> Thanks. With early draws TK dropped behind on tiebreaks but got to snack on weaker opposition.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||twinlark: oops!|
|Mar-13-12|| ||twinlark: <brankat>
I've cut and copied my comments to the Reykjavik page, thanks for stepping in before I made a complete ass of myself.
|Mar-13-12|| ||twinlark: <waustad>
Indeed, while the other two got to dine out on meatier opposition.
|Mar-13-12|| ||dx9293: Gunina gets a <20 game> GM norm, by achieving a GM norm in a Continental Championship.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||amaurobius: Congratulations to Cmilyte on 11 decisive games out of 11!|
|Mar-13-12|| ||Penguincw: So it looks like we have a three way tie, before tiebreaks. Congratz all!|
|Mar-13-12|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Very narrow finish, actually. 2660 vs 2649 vs 2631 performances. The silver and bronze medalists must be feeling uncomfortable.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||kingscrusher: Absolute Congratulations Natalia!
What a fantastic performance!
Maybe I should cover some of your games in my Chessbase broadcast later or next week?!
|Mar-13-12|| ||jakaiden: Wow, no comments about the dress code?? If there is no outrage about this, the next thing will be all women will have to wear Burkas in these countries. I can't stand these people who always want to tell you what to wear, what to drink, what to eat, and how to look.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||jakaiden: OMG I just saw your comment on Chessbase Natalia, would you actually wear a Burka in a Muslim country?|
|Mar-13-12|| ||virginmind: congratulations to the three players who got 8.5 points!|
|Mar-13-12|| ||BLS: hmmm...been looking around at some of the players in this tournament, from different sites on the web. One might conclude, thru preconceived notions and bias associated with intellect, that the top women players in the world would be nerdy, plump folk with an order in for Proactive skin cleanser. The fact is, the vast majority of these top-ranked players are HOTTT!!!|
|Mar-14-12|| ||Boomie: <Natalia Pogonina>
Nice finish to the tournament. You're going to win one of these some day.
|Mar-16-12|| ||cro777: Tatiana Kosintseva became the winner of the European Individual Women <Rapid> Chess Championship 2012 in Gaziantep, Turkey.|
An interesting detail. In the last game Antoaneta Stefanova missed a mate in 1 against Elisabeth Paehtz.
Position after 55...Qe4

White to play.
The position is approximately equal. White could play, for instance, 56.Qf1 and if 56...Kxh6 then 57.Qf4+ (or 56...Qxe3 57.Qc4) etc. Stefanova played <56.Qb6>.
|Mar-16-12|| ||notyetagm: [ 20. Rxe7+ Kf8 21. Rxc7 Qb8 22. Rxf7+ Kxf7 23. Bxb8 bxc4 24. Bf4 Rhc8 25. Qe2 g5 26. Bxg5 c3 27. bxc3 Kg6 28. Bf4 Bh6 29. Qc2+ Kg7 30. Bxh6+ Kxh6 31. Re1 Kg7 32. Qf5 Re8 33. Re6 Rxe6 34. Qxe6 Re8 ]|
|Mar-16-12|| ||notyetagm: 1) Hoang,Thanh Trang - Lahno,Kateryna (2), => TACTICAL TARGET CAN BE A TACTICAL MOTIF (PINNING CHAIN!!) a la Chin vs Pointe 30...Qh4xe4! A tricky double attack! Perhaps White completely missed the second target of it - 31.Re5 [31.Rf3 Rxf3 32.gxf3 Qe1–+] 31...Rxh3# 0–1|
2) T.Kosintseva vs Stefanova (9), => PAWN AVALANCHES 20 Re1xe7+!
3) Gunina,Valentina - Molchanova,Tatjana (1) => PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! PINS! but after careless 32.Rd1?? [32.Nd4!] 32...Bc6-a4! those pins became White's nightmare
