Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-29-18  sonia91: Congratulations on winning the World Girls U18 with a round to spare! At 9/10, she has a 1,5 points edge over her closest follower: She also won the rapid and blitz championships in her category before the start of the classical WYCC.

By winning gold in the world girls U18 Shuvalova also receives a direct WGM norm, her third and final one. The first norm comes from the European Individual Women's Championship 2018, where she finished in the top 14, therefore qualifying for the 2020 Women's WC; the second WGM norm was gained at the Russian Championship Superfinal (Women) (2018).

Earlier this month, Shuvalova also won the Russian Women's Rapid Championship:

Mar-02-19  sonia91: At 2471, Shuvalova is the new number one in the FIDE top girls list of March 2019, overtaking Zhansaya Abdumalik.
Oct-26-19  cro777: Polina Shuvalova is the World Girls Junior Champion 2019!

After winning the world girls U18 championship for the second time she also won the world junior (under 20) girls championship which was held in New Delhi, India from October 14-26. The winner receives the WGM title.
