  Max of Tat: I don't know if I'm more shocked that the move was played (by a 2600 player), or that the capture was missed (by a 2400 player).

It wouldn't surprise me for that loss to devastate Fierro-Baquero for the remainder of the tournament.

  chancho: Wow, 37.Qxf6 and she missed it!
Mar-13-09  EXIDE: Time trouble ? Nothing else explains this, since she moved the Queen in the first place on move 35 to exchange Queens.
Mar-13-09  noviant: Maybe something wrong with the sheet...even if in time trouble I guess Fierro-Baquero wouldn't missed to threat mate by taking the Black Queen...because she played for another 20 more moves after that.... Strange..????
Mar-17-09  percyblakeney: Chessbase confirms that the game score is incorrect, black didn't play 36. ... Rc8 but Re1+:
