"At this moment, when Nona realized that she had no more chances and I was about to mate her, I could see the tears in her eyes. Every time when Georgian players won a game, the three to five hundred spectators applauded enthusiastically. But now there was a dead silence in the hall. It was evident that many people had come especially to watch her play. Then, after some thinking, she resigned."

- GM Xie Jun (in her book Chess Champion from China - The Life and Games of Xie Jun)
