  whiteshark: <11 rounds> That's right <alexmagnus>.

Chess24 (still) has the schedule right but the description wrong. I'm guilty of careless copying & non-disclosure of my source. Thank goth it's not my PhD thesis. ;)

Apr-19-17  John Abraham: am a big fan of Aleksandra, hope she can win this event!! her performance has been very strong.
Apr-19-17  Bruce Graham: Wondering where Gunina is. She won it in 2014.

  whiteshark: Wondering where Anna Ushenina is. She won it in 2016.
Apr-20-17  siggemannen: I also wonder about Gunina, she always brings a lot of color and chaos to the tourneys
Apr-20-17  althus: <whiteshark> I was reading an interview with her the other day on a Kharkov news site, where she cited the cost of travel + hotel + provisions as the reason for not going, particularly since she'd just gone to the WWCC in Iran.

She seems to have been treated rather poorly by the Ukrainian federation. Was promised an apartment for winning the world championship a few years back, but it's still caught up in red tape. Still lives with her mum, and two cats.

  whiteshark: Thanks for the info 'n link, <althus>.

The onerous conditions somehow saddens me, though. :(

  HeMateMe: maybe the hotel and per diem for meals should be covered by the tournament promoters, for the top 15 seeded players? That's how you get the best to participate.
Apr-21-17  siggemannen: Interesting interview, although not too hopeful on Ukrainian chess future.
Apr-23-17  sonia91: Congrats to Nana Dzagnidze!

Silver goes to Alexandra Goryachkina (I wonder if she achieved a GM norm) and bronze to Alisa Galliamova, twice world women's vice champion.

  HeMateMe: I googled the tournament, 2017, and got this photo:

<http://qatarchess2016.com/DohaChess...>

that was the blitz ch, won by Anna M. There doesn't seem to be much coverage of the event, nothing on chessbase which always has this event.

Apr-25-17  PhilFeeley: No Kosteniuk?

Were there any GM norms here (i.e. Paetz)?

Apr-25-17  Nerwal: <Were there any GM norms here>

Not official but Goryachkina probably has a 9 games norm. There must be also a full batch of IM norms.

Players were more careful than usual in this tournament. Lots of draws to secure the first 14 spots. M. Muzychuk didn't even try to fight for podium.

  Tabanus: http://chess-results.com/tnr269716...., I updated the standings list according to it for the 100 best players (of which 29 are shown here). No missing games on the upper part of the list, as far as I could see, but there were three wrong game results (slips sent).
