2013 Chinese Chess Championship

Hola, darlings!  I'll cut right to chase. How the hell did Hou Yifan (the lone female in the championship) do?  She did well.  Hoooray!  The bad news is, she was not playing against the top-rated "western chess" Chinese players in this championship. The Chinese Chess Federation continues to play games, but with a surfeit of good, to very good to excellent chess players that it will continue to pull out of it's magic hat for the next decade or two, they don't give a shit what anyone thinks about IT and will continue to do so.  Such is life.  It sucks, sometimes.
