It's not the first time.

  Natalia Pogonina: <sisyphus> It's called a Bermuda party, but all the teams are welcome there. However, many captains are rather strict, so they do not recommend their players to visit it. I have showed up there for a short time, was cool :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Is that Bermuda party like "Carnival" in Brazil? Hey!....
Sep-03-12  Fish55: The US should bench Goletiani for most remaining rounds. Her performance has been at 2000 level, and she was extremely lucky to draw a 1900 player today.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sisyphus: <Natalia Pogonina> Congratulations to Nadia for pulling out the win and tying the China match!

I'm curious about Tatiana's game. I admire anyone who plays the Ruy Lopez Marshall - I gather she was going for a win. Black has very good practical chances after 17.Qxd5 Rae8, inasmuch as the d6 bishop is untouchable. Might she have been taken out of preparation by the uncommon 15.Bxd5?

  HeMateMe: Clash of the titans, China-Russia drawn 2-2. Yifan and N. Kointseva win, respetively. Kosteniuk and Pogonina hold their draws.

USA smashed Canada 3 1/2 to 1/2. Canada had no one over 2200 in that match. I'm kind of surprised--Canada has a few Russian GM emmigrants, but no female chess emigrants?

We have a *few* GM emigrants - given the male / female ratio in chess, is it surprising that all of our GM emigrants are male?

  scormus: <Natalia Pogonina: .... It's called a Bermuda party> Well done on your 4/4! After that I think you deserve a bit of time at the party
Sep-03-12  Kinan: The Syrian women are doing great. Next match is a tough one against Germany.

  HeMateMe: <We have a *few* GM emigrants - given the male / female ratio in chess, is it surprising that all of our GM emigrants are male?

> Well, what IS the male/female ratio up north, and why is it so one sided? A girl I knew in college said to me "I tell all my girlfriends, if you want to get married, go to Alaska. You'll find a husband". She lived up there for a time.

No tanning spas?

Sep-04-12  waustad: And Natalia looks at 62.) Rxb4 and says to herself, "Thanks Karina!"
Sep-04-12  waustad: Dembo has a rook and two knights versus a queen. All pawns are gone.
Sep-04-12  niemzo: I guess Dembo will push until the 50 move rule comes into effect since Greece needs a win to draw the match.
Sep-04-12  niemzo: That was a really narrow escape for Russia. Now I think they are in a tie for first place alongside China and Poland.
Sep-04-12  waustad: The chess on some of the bottom tables is amazing. I guess it is a political statement having an Afghan women's team entered, but they lost 4-0 against an Angolan team that had scored only 1/2 board points in the first 6 rounds.

  Natalia Pogonina: Garry Kasparov saw an opposite-color bishop endgame in my game and told our captain that I will win it. How could I let Garry down? :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  sisyphus: <How could I let Garry down?> Talk about keeping the pressure on till your opponent panics. You are an inspiration to all of us.
Sep-05-12  niemzo: Rajlich seems to have made an incomprehensible error against Zhao today by transposing into a lost pawn endgame. Even if she was losing anyway, it just made it very easy for her opponent.
Sep-05-12  s4life: kosintseva vs lahno in first board or RUS vs UKR or how to avoid winning with white for 80 moves. What an anti-climatic ending! but it made for good drama...
Sep-05-12  waustad: Melanie Ohme is writing about the Olympiad daily on her blog: In German.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sisyphus: T. Kosintseva and Lahno go 157 moves before calling it a draw, 7 short of the 50-move mark in a rook versus bishop endgame.
Sep-05-12  virginmind: it must have been dire today for the russian team captain to watch tatiana playing 112.Rh7 (instead of h7)...not to mention struggling after that for 45 more moves to get an ilusionary win.
Sep-05-12  Maatalkko: It's like the U.S. board 2 is a Super Smash Bros. character with a special move. Except instead of "Falcon Punch!" it's "Irina Krush!"
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Kat Lahno played a 157 move draw against T-Kos, and the Ukranians held Russia to a 2-2 tie. The T sister had all the winning chances, but couldn't get the full point.

That's LARGE, Kat!

Sep-06-12  waustad: Yildiz wins again to go to +7.
