It never hurt Judit to ignore these events, and Hou probably has the potential to compete in top open events. I agree, she may not bother.
Are there any games on today? @Charlotte, Sisu? I have no means of ways to follow this tournament without this forum thread :/
Yes, I think there is a game today.
Game 7 just started. Will it be the last of the match?
Anna looks safe, but she needs to win!
One thing I'm happy to see is that Anna isn't using big chunks of time over a position as of yet.
Looks like this will be over already today.
So +4 -0 =3 is the final result, very easy for Hou and it really looked as if the difference between the players was even bigger than ratings suggested.
Congratulations to Hou Yifan, the rightful ladies World Champ !
Wow! Great match by Yifan Hou!! I feel bad for Anna Ushenina, who is a much better opponent than the score would indicate if you play through her games in last year's championship tournament and this year's match against Peter Svidler(#17 in the world).
Yifan wins her second of three matches this year (winning #43 David Navara in tiebreaks in June, and losing to #54 Alexei Shirov in tiebreaks in August). Her rating is now 2620.
Wow, this lady is some match player.
Congrats to Hou Yifan!
The No. of games played in this match was indirectly propotional to the No. of Ushenina fans present in this forum !
In 7 games, Hou Yifan displayed devastating form with 4 wins and 3 draws. Anna could not even salvage a win. This shows that Yifan is a " First Among Equals ".
thanks to everyone who's been involved in the thread, i've enjoyed your company!
and congrats to Yifan Hou, a great Champion
Thank you for hosting this thread, Charlotte! Too bad the game times made it impossible for me to follow live, but this thread gave a little taste of it:)
it was a pleasure Sharon. i think the times of the Carlsen-Anand match in November are slightly better for people in the USA, from what i've made out they will start around 5.30 AM Eastern
