2011 FIDE Women's Grand Prix - Nalchik

Yeah, that "where?" place once again is hosting the Women's Grand Prix.  No sign of GM Koneru Humpy.  GM Hou Yifan is also sitting out this GP.  She didn't have the best performance in the recently-concluded European Women's Club Cup and I expect needs to take a break!  Website

Play will be October 9 - 21, 2011, with two rest days.  Here's the line-up:

Nadezhda Kosintseva RUSGM 2560
Katerina LahnoUKR GM 2554
Tatiana Kosintseva RUS GM 2536
Ju WenjunCHNGM 2536
Antoaneta StefanovaBULGM 2528
Viktorija Cmilyte LTUGM 2525
Alisa GalliamovaRUSIM 2498
Zhao Xue CHNGM 2497
Zhu Chen QTRGM 2490
Alexandra KosteniukRUSGM 2469
Munguntuul BatkhuyagMGL IM 2465
Ekaterina KovalevskayaRUS IM 2421

In the absence of Hou Yifan, any of these women could take the top spot.
