    Draw in game one of the tie-break. Ushenina had a considerable time advantage for much of the game, but it evened out toward the end. Came down to a 2 bishops and pawns/player endgame that went on for quite a few moves. I doubt Stefanova was happy with a draw with White. Next game has already started.

    Anna has an easy endgame to become Women's World Champion.

    And Ushenina does win. New Women's World Champion Anna Ushenina. Not a bad result for the #30 seed.

    Yeah.

    Anna still wearing the same red jumper. I wonder if it ever gets washed.

    I'm betting that it gets washed every night, in the sink with a handful of Persil. Nothing's too good for these leviathans of chess.

    She wore something else for yesterday's game. There was some study done that showed that wearing red actually gives a person an edge in sports. Don't know if that holds for chess though.

    funny thing is that he hadn't slept some nights to watch the matchs and the day of the resolution it seems she is sleeping it off

    Ushenina now automatically has the GM title bestowed upon her.

     

    The requirements for becoming a Grandmaster are somewhat complex. A player must have attained an Elo rating of at least 2500 (although they need not maintain this level to obtain or keep the title). In addition, at least two favorable results (called norms) from a total of at least 27 games in tournaments involving other Grandmasters, including some from countries other than the applicant's, are usually required before FIDE will confer the title on a player. There are other milestones a player can achieve to get the title, such as winning the Women's World Championship, the World Junior Championship, or the World Senior Championship. Current regulations can be found in the FIDE Handbook.

    That's GM, not WGM, right?
