    I don't wanna be too harsh on her because she seems nice, but frankly she is useless.

    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.

    not, imagine you wash and you start to lose, are you mad or what happens?

    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?

    yes, she was already IM which needs more or less same requirements than WGM

    That was really interesting! It's a shame one had to lose as they were both so impressive throughout the tournament. I think Yifan Hou is going to have a difficult match with Anna Ushenina.Smile

    For those interested, the London Chess Classic has started about a half-hour ago. I'm at the site with live commentary, but all they're doing is playing music so the commentary hasn't started yet, or they are on a break?

    My pleasure, Benkobaby. I watched it for a little while. The commentators are the one's who do the "English Breakfast" podcast. I liked Judit's game against Kramnik, where she exchanged a knight for two pawns in the opening! Very creative game, which Kramnik won. I haven't played through the other games yet, but it's neat to see all four games were wins.Smile
