|Apr-12-17|| ||tamar: Jennifer R Yu, ready to rumble, is her greeting to opponents.|
|Nov-25-17|| ||waustad: Her loss to the winner in the last round probably kept her a little below an IM norm in the world juniors, but at 15, it's just a matter of time. http://chess-results.com/tnr306061....|
|Nov-25-17|| ||joeyj: Well she got her WIM (direct title for Bronze @ World U20) and also qualified for a WGM norm with an Rp=2438 (2400 min level for WGM norm).|
|Nov-27-17|| ||joeyj: If we count/compute her results counting only R2 to R10 (a 9-game) her results will be an IM norm (Rp= 2492 more than enough for an IM norm).|
Btw, this is permitted by the FIDE handbook "For 10 rounds or more it is possible that deleting a game that has been won could be advantageous."
Or refer to: 1.42f A player may ignore his game(s) against any opponents he has defeated, provided he has met the required mix of opponents, and provided that this leaves him with at least the minimum number of games as in 1.41, against the required mix of opponents.
|Oct-04-18|| ||UncleBent: Jennifer has earned her 3rd IM Norm, based on her results at the Batumi Olympiad. Her rating will still be below the 2400 required to get the IM title. If/when she reaches 2400 ELO, Jennifer would become the 1st native-born, US Female to become an IM.|
|Oct-04-18|| ||sonia91: <UncleBent> Actually Martha Lorena Fierro Baquero is the first US-born female player to become IM, she plays for Ecuador, but was born in US and has dual citizenship.|
|Oct-04-18|| ||UncleBent: <sonia91> Thanks for the correction.|
|Oct-04-18|| ||sonia91: I stand corrected: it's actually Alisa Maric, who achieved the IM title in 1993, while Fierro Baquero gained it in 2005.|
|Mar-26-19|| ||Otoy: <CG.com.>, can we please provide picture of this young lady who is at the helm of the ongoing 2019 US Women Chess Championship.|

|Mar-30-19|| ||botvinnik64: Amazing performance - how long has it been since anyone clinches this Championship with a round to spare? 9/10? Are you kidding!!!??
We are not worthy...|
|Mar-30-19|| ||parmetd: 2009 Anna Zatonskih 8.5/9|
|Mar-30-19|| ||PhilFeeley: Picture (and a nice one):
|Mar-31-19|| ||Otoy: No picture yet CG.Com!?? Why???|
|Apr-01-19|| ||TheBish: And time to update her profile. US Women's champ 2019! Way to go Jennifer! Congratulations!|
|Apr-06-19|| ||BIDMONFA: Jennifer R Yu|
YU, Jennifer R.
|Jun-17-19|| ||UncleBent: She has accepted a wild card invitation to play in the US Junior (Open) Championship, which begins July 10. She will be rated 9th out of 10, behind 4 GMs and 4 IMs. Jennifer already has the 3 IM norms, but still needs to get to 2400 ELO to be earn the title.|
|Jun-22-19|| ||siggemannen: No games this year? Guess she prioritises studies|
|Jul-13-19|| ||ketchuplover: 0/2 at the US Juniors event so far|
|Jul-15-19|| ||dangerhump: It's unfortunate to see her make the same mistake as Annie Wang did last year and play in an event that she is outmatched in. It would be better to continue to train and learn and play in events that are closer to her level. Getting crushed like this over and over is not good for confidence.|
|Jul-21-19|| ||UncleBent: <It's unfortunate to see her make the same mistake as Annie Wang did last year and play in an event that she is outmatched in.>|
I'm not going to blame the judgement of a 17 year old. As I have commented previously, she was looking to gain 50 more ELO points, get to 2400 and then "cash in" her 3 norms for the IM Title. Yes... she was very over-matched, by stronger opponents who have far more experience in top-level play, and who have spent considerably more time and effort into studying the game. "They" were waiting for her, were aware of her limited opening repertoire, and had prepared lines. But shouldn't the blame be put on the St Louis CC for giving her the wild/card entry?
|Jul-22-19|| ||MissScarlett: Maybe America should think of importing more Norwegians.|
