Dec-15-12  waustad: BTW, they are not tied at 14 pts each.
Tomorrow they play at 14:00 CET, which I think is 8:00 EST.

  WannaBe: Heck, I'd pay bad money to see Sopiko Guramishvili. Hello Future Ex-Wife!
Dec-16-12  waustad: Quite an impressive recovery by the old hands. They came back to win by 2 after being way behind. Tania Sachdev was the high scorer at +4.
Dec-16-12  waustad: <brankat>
Dec-16-12  waustad: It appears that Kristýna Havlíková lost all of her games in the second half of the tournament after going +1-1=2 through round 4.

Maybe some of the best female players of the '90s, could participate.

Dec-27-12  waustad: One thing that should be noted in the previous post. As good as Shirley Bassey looks there, we don't know when that was shot. She's 75 now, but the clip might have been shot when Sean Connery still had hair and I hadn't turned "adult blond".
