    white can play Nb2 then i think, but black has the trade on d4 followed by a bishop sac when the pawn is motoring

    Kateryn Lahno and Nadezhda Kosinsteva also go to tie breaks tomorrow. So, of the top five seeded players, four go to tie-breaks, and one is out! 

    Edit: Lahno lost!

    Earlier I mistakenly said that Kateryna Lahno is playing a tie break tomorrow, but the number five seed is out of the tournament, beaten by Lela Javakhishvili!Surprised

    So, the number 2, 5, and 8 seeds are gone. One former world champion-- Alexandra Kosteniuk--is out of the tournament!

    Hope it does not put the mockers on her but I am starting to fancy our own Natalya Pogonina for the title. :D

    Yup, Nino, my ex-teammate, went fine today- although the game was decided by the bad blunder 21...Bd5?? which throws away the exchange and a pawn.

    Why doesn't this work?: 22. Nxb6  Bxb3  23. Rc3 Nd5. It seems like black should get one pawn for the R/N exchange.

    Okay, so I just woke up and found out that Yifan Hou is out of the tournament. Anna Muzychuk is also out of the tournament. I'm going back to bedCry

    Going back to bed is always a good option. :)

    But, hey, look at the cool players that are still in. And think how excited the ladies pulling off the big upsets are going to be.

    Pick a new favourite to root for.

    (And what an excellent site to watch the tournament on. Props to the organisers.)

    this things happen in KO tourneys, if Alexander Khalifman was world champ. Also closed tourneys should rotate the people the invite to play

    I guess Xue Zhao is currently the highest rated player

    I'm going to take johnyoudell's advice and choose Socko against Pogonina for the final. If you can beat Yifan Hou 3-1, then you have to be one of the favorites against the current Olympic gold medalist and Russian champion.
