Jun-09-14  waustad: Talk about depth! These folks are trying to get into the superfinals. Several of these would be among the favorites in any US Women's championship.

Yes: Girya, Kashlinskaya, Goryachkina, etc. would all be strong candidates to win the US Women's Championship.

  HeMateMe: Is this a sort of playoff to get in, which doesn't include Kosteniuk, Pogonina and Ushenina, et. al?
Jun-11-14  waustad: <HHM>Yes.

  eternaloptimist: I had never heard of Girya or Kashlinskaya before I checked these tourney results but since both of them are 2400+ players, they are needless to say forces to be reckoned w/!
