  alexmagnus: Some games are duplicate!
Oct-15-14  virginmind: Ioana Gelip (2154) is making a good impression at WJC, today playing the last round (board three) against Daria Pustovoitova (2354). Good luck!
Oct-15-14  virginmind: It's not the last round, my mistake. She was placed 4th with 6/8 points, but today in the 9th she lost against Pustovoitova.

An <OPENING CATASTROPHE> on Board 1 in Round 10:

10 ... g5-g4 0-1

If the White f3-knight moves, then Black plays 11 ... ♘e4x♘d2 and White cannot take back becase 12 ♕d1x♘d2?? ♗f8-b4 <PINS> the White d2-queen to the e1-king.

A *crushing* way to lose a White game on Board 1 late in the tournament. White must have been in shock after this game.

Wow, very similar with the idea of ... g5-g4! <REMOVING THE GUARD> if the White bishop had moved instead of playing ♗x♙.

Oct-18-14  waustad: Congratulations to Aleksandra Goryachkina for winning before the last round. Perhaps next time she should play in the open side.
Oct-19-14  fref: I wonder why Aleksandra Goryachkina got to start 8 times with the white pieces and only 5 with the black ones.
Oct-19-14  waustad: <fref>Pairings get strange sometimes in a Swiss. After some earlier draws, she wasn't always on the top board. I would assume that the top board switched between black and white each round and the rest of the boards alternated colors. One FM commenting on chessbomb bemoaned getting 5 consecutive blacks in a Swiss.
Oct-20-14  fisayo123: I just saw that. That's obviously a huge advantage for Goryachinka. Really pathetic that.

  Tabanus: And congrats to Chumpitaz for 3rd place with only 12 games.

  Tabanus: Reddy Hinduja vs Ann Chumpitaz 0-1 (round 1) is only missing game in top-29.
