2010 Chess Olympiad - Round 5 Women

Right now I'm watching Krush v. Anna Muzychuk live action at Chessbomb.  It's a long game - over 55 moves thus far and material is even... Krush has about 11 1/2 minutes left on her clock, Muzychuk a little over 14.

Zhao Xue and Alexandra Kosteniuk are still playing too - lots of pieces on the board (about move 46) and looks like a tactical melee!  If the clock at Chessbomb is right Kosteniuk is down to 2 minutes or so to Zhao Xue's 14.

Polgar drew her game with Karjakin - did it take more than 5 minutes for them to play this game:

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nf6 4. O-O Nxe4 5. d4 Nd6 6. Bxc6 dxc6 7. dxe5 Nf5 8. Qxd8+ Kxd8 9. Nc3 Ke8 10. h3 h5 11. Rd1 Be7 12. Ne2 Be6 13. Nf4 Bc8 14. Ne2 Be6 15. Nf4 Bc8 ½-½

I hope she has a nice day of rest :)
