  cro777: Zhao Xue thought she was playing Black against Muzychuk, but had to play White against Girya (she initially sat down at the wrong board, against Muzychuk). The shock was too big and she lost.

  whiteshark: Bigamy is having one ♕ too many, monogamy is the same.
Apr-16-14  Nerwal: This time Girya converted nicely her avantage by judging correctly this queen endgame as won. Playing 26... h4 and 33... a5 looks very strange but it's based on concrete calculation and quite effective. Instead, the academic plan at move 24 would be to put the king to a8, rook to d8, then play b6-c5, but that doesn't look really better than what she did.
