However, try this instead:

  tamar: Pogonina lost her advantage, so it looks like +3 to China in round 2, unless Gunina pulls off miracle swindle.
Jul-16-15  Nerwal: What actually happened in the Kashlinskaya game ? That gamescore looks completely nuts; did Black hang b7 for free and White really fall for a Ne2+ trick (basically Black's only threat) ?
Jul-19-15  waustad: Today the Chinese women won all 3 completed games, but are down in the two remaining games. Today has not been peaceful.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Two remaining games ended in a draw, China won the round 4-1. The Chinese are now leading 11-9.

Obviously, the captain of the Russian team GM Sergey Rublevsky was not too fortunate:

Jul-19-15  dumbgai: The Chinese women struck back today, winning big. Now China leads in both the men's and women's sections of the match, going into the final round...
Jul-20-15  waustad: And another big day for the Chinese. After her win today against Pogonina, Shen Yang is at +3.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: China won the final round 4-1, so the final score in the women's section is 15-10.

The best players are:

IM Shen Yang 4/5 (80%)
WGM Tan Zhongyi 3.5/5 (70%)
WGM Lei Tingjie 3.5/5 (70%) and
IM Alina Kashlinskaya 2.5/5 (50%)

Disappointing result for the best Russian player GM Valentina Gunina who scored 2/5 (40%).

In the final round Ding Yixin beat Gunina and won her first game:

  cro777: On rest day players visited Yinzhou local museum:

The Yinzhou Museum (also known as the Ningbo Historic Museum) focuses on Ningbo area history and traditional customs. The museum won the Lu Ban Prize in 2009, the top architecture prize in China.

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Gunina continues her close encounter with Chinese chess. She will play for the Experimental Junior High School Chess Team Qingdao in the third leg (four rounds) of the 2015 Chinese Chess League (Division A) which starts on Friday, July 24th in Shanghai, China.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: The best individual result for Shen Young, a former World Junior Champion. In 2006 she won the World Under 20 World Championship ahead of Hou Yifan!

Jul-20-15  dumbgai: <cro777> My reactions to the photos linked above:

1. Wei Yi is really tall.

2. The Ningbo museum is a freaky looking building.

Similarly to men's team, the Russians looks happier as if they had won instead of the Chinese.

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: <dumbgai> This is WGM Jilin Zhang (the Chinese correspondent of New in Chess Magazine) first impression of Wei Yi:

"Wei Yi and I meet at a Starbucks quite close to the offices of the Chinese Chess Federation. I know that building where most of the Chinese teams live. I used to go there as a junior talent myself, around the time that Wei Yi was born!

Wei Yi walks in quietly, wearing a red T-shirt and slacks. With his sports shoes and his height he looks like a basketball player."

Jul-23-15  Everett: What is the value of "looking happy" in photos...
