    Cramling-Krush was quite a game, however Irina Krush does seem to be off to a bit of a slow start.

    It's a shame we have to wait that long to see how Irina's second game is goingFrown

    Wow, thanks for the game Scottrf. Pretty shocking result. So Humpy is out, and Hou and Anna Muzychuk are going to have to play tie-breakers to stay in the tournament!. There is a clause I believe, where if Yifan Hou is not the winner of this tournament, she will automatically get to play the winner in a match for the WWCC.

    Houdini evaluates Pogonina's position as +1.07, against Kosteniuk!

    Still looks a tough slog to win.

    other moves would have been worse ... 28.Bd4 was a blunder (allowing some nice black combinations with the pawn on d3) but she was going downhill after the "obvious" 21.Rc7 ?

    Yeah thought that might be the case after looking for a bit longer, black was getting quite a bit of pressure with the 2 bishops and the rook on the b file.

    What is the move if 29. Qc3? d2 maybe?
