    Suddenly a massive blunder from Antoaneta and Marie has it in ze bag.

    Black seems lost, even without blundering.

    yes, 28.e5 was tough for black to defend.

    Draw?! Kosintseva just drew with Ushenina, and I don't understand why? Here is the game:

    Well known drawing position, you mean you don't know the technique?

    I guess so. Why wouldn't white try to start pushing the queen pawns?

    Seems like Konitseva missed a tactic with 2 double attacks? What was she worried about to move the king?

    Well, the only thing I can think of is that Nadezhda thought she was playing her sisterLaughing

    Surely gxf6 is the first move you calculate with the pawn fork?

    Must have just stopped short with the calculation?

    But seriously you wouldn't expect a GM to miss it?

    Since it was the 36th move, perhaps there was time troubleUndecided

    Ju Wenjun and Huang Qian are playing on, even though Khalifman is getting annoyedLaughing One of the good things about being up so early in the morning to watch this tournament is that the bakery next to my home has yummy pastries! So, I just came back from getting a delicious blueberry bagel fresh out of the oven! MmmmmmmWink

     That does stink - all the Americans are ousted.  At least we know that we will have a new champion, which is kind of cool.

    Really? To my poor knowledge, the winner of this tournament will play Hou Yifan next year for the crown.

    If Hou won, she would play next year against Humpy (again).

    Interesting.  So if Hou didn't play in this tournament, would she lose her crown? 

    This must be different than the way the men's qualifier is set up?  I thought its always that they have a knockout tournament to decide who the challenger will be, and then the top challenger plays the champion.  The women's setup is different?  Maybe I should be googling this stuff.

    Yifan Hou already lost her crown in the second round. She will get a chance to get it back when she plays the winner of this tournament in 2013Wink

    The men compete in a candidates tournament, the current champion doesn't compete, the tournament is for the right to face him.
