  Penguincw: Congrats to Tingjie Lei for her performance at the Chinese Women Championship. She scored 7.5/11 for a tie for 3rd, but was the only undefeated player.

  WannaBe: Picture of her from last year, about 1/2 way down:

Feb-12-16  waustad: She has returned to Graz this year to play in the Graz Open. This tournament isn't played at the casino, so she doesn't have to play next door. After a win over IM Walter Wittmann in the first round her second round opponent will be FM Robert Perhinig (2315). Games can be found on, including with a live feed.

  WannaBe: Must be very distracting to have all the slot machine noises and croupier yelling SEVEN WINNA!!!
Feb-16-16  waustad: After 6 rounds she is 1/2 point behind the leaders Markus Ragger, Li Chao b and Banusz Tamas. Ragger is certainly leading in moves played, since today he strove to win a game a pawn up in a rook and opposite colored bishop endgame, lasting 120 moves. Her opponent in round 7 is Pap Gyula. (FYI, since both Chinese and Magyar use family name first, I think I've ordered names in their local form. I make no promises that I got it right, but I try.)
Feb-18-16  waustad: Going into the 9th round a GM norm is almost sure. She's in a 3 way tie for second place with 6, half a point behind Li Chao. Her opponent tomorrow is Banusz Tamas. With a 2732 tpr so far, I think the norm is in the bag, along with some prize money. I'm not sure if she could get both the top female prize and an overall place prize in this tournament, since it is sometimes explicitly stated that only one prize can be won. If this is an only one prize tournament, Monica Socko is the most likely to win the top female, dispite her loss today to Markus Ragger.
Feb-19-16  sonia91: She finished 4th in Graz with a 2662 performance, earning her second GM norm:
