2010 U.S. Women's Chess Championship - R8

Krush has won her game against Zenyuk well before time control.

Commentary now says that Abrahamyan v. Zatonskih looks drawish, which most likely means it will be Zatonskih and Krush facing off once again in an Armageddon play-off if they both win tomorrow.  What a pain in the you-know-what.  I never want to see another tournament decided that way again, it was awful, horrible.

Holy Goddess - Melekhina just queened a pawn!  Haven't seen that yet in this championship!  She now has TWO queens on the board!  She queened with check on move 40 just as Foisor was mounting a potential devastating checkate attack!

Update 6:14 p.m.

Melekhina won with the black pieces against Foisor.

Rohonyon defeated Marinello with the black pieces.

Two games left:  Abrahamyan/Zatonskih, where things seem to have taken a turn against Abrahamyan; and Marshall/Baginskaite, where Marshall is in big trouble and looks like a win for Baginskaite.

The battle is still for 4th place between Melekhina and Rohonyan.
