Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-06-19  sonia91: Shafigullina and Tomilova qualified for the Women's Superfinal with a round to spare with 7/8, as they are 1.5 points above the closest followers, at 5.5/8. I suppose this is unprecedented.

Tomilova also qualified last year.

Similarly to the main section, also here the top seed, Bodnaruk, is out of contention for the top 5 spots.
