May-18-20  et1: The last game between Kateryna and Tingjlie in Armageddon will be famous one day. It lasted 152 moves which must be a record in that format. Furthermore between move 101 and move 128 Kateryna who only needed a draw to win moved her bishop of white colors 28 times back and forth between b7 and c6. Incredible. This is what great sport is about. Check here -
May-19-20  SirChrislov: be famous one day or left in oblivion?
embarrassing play by both sides I'd say, a back and forth silly dance until white had to do something but had no good moves so ended up losing. she won legally and I know 1st prize was at stake but the game left a bad image. As GM Eduard Gufeld used to say...

"this is not chess."

May-19-20  SirChrislov: Zhansaya Abdumalik of Kazakhstan scored 10 out of 18, that's amazing for someone in the weak trio of the group. congrats to her.
