  • Tara says:

    Superstrong win but this years pairings were too upsetting what a quirk of ratings the russians knocking out russians

  • Simon says:

    Ushenina is playing excellent chess here comfortably outplaying Muzychuk, Pogonina, Kosintsiva in a row with a very steady and creative game. She only should not spend so much time early in the games what caused her only blunder in the previous game. And she is beautiful! Cheering hard for her yo take the title!
