I just got settled in after getting home from the office. A cold (high didn't get above 46 degrees F), rainy, uber-windy and generally all-around crappy day here in Milwaukeeland. After two sunny teaser days, one high of 85 F and the next high of 77 F. Arrrggghhh!
So I rushed home to see if the games were over already (they are) -- well, they started at 1 p.m. Didn't have a SECOND to check the action while at the office. So without further ado, here are the results for the ladies:
Alena Kats (2144) (W) v. Irina Krush (2470)(B): 0-1: An 82 move headbanger - Holy Hathor!
Tatev Abrahamyan (2280) (W) v. Sabina Foisor (2300) (B): 1-0: Black resigned on move 87 - looks like a wild game with neither player wishing to back down.
Camille Baginskaite (2278) (W) v. Viktorija Ni (2262) (B): 1/2-1/2: Draw agreed to after W's move 41. An evenly matched pairing.
Iryna Zenyuk (2243) (W) v. Sarah Chiang (2098) (B): 1-0: Sarah Chiang is the youngest player, at age 15. She resigned after W's move 61.
Anna Zatonskih (2466) (W) v. Anjelina Belakovskaia (2263) (B): 1-0: I haven't played through it, looks like it moved to end game relatively quickly, bang bang bang bang! B resigned after move 26, despite putting W's K into check and despite being up 2 pawns, because W had safe moves for her K plus a pawn that would promote in one move after her K's move, and B had no way to stop it.
