2010 U.S. Women's Chess Championship - R9

Soon we'll know whether we have a straight-out champion or must go to the play-off tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.

I've made my predictions at Chess Femme News

1 IM Anna Zatonskih 7.0 2518 - WGM Sabina Foisor 2.5 2356
2 WGM Katerina Rohonyan 4.5 2322 - WFM Tatev Abrahamyan 6.5 2403
3 WGM Camilla Baginskaite 3.0 2387 - WIM Beatriz Marinello 1.5 2206
4 IM Irina Krush 7.0 2521 - WFM Abby Marshall 0.5 2211
5 WIM Alisa Melekhina 4.5 2323 - WIM Iryna Zenyuk 3.0 2286

And, as Mr. Don so aptly pointed out in this new graphic he put together for Goddesschess, soon we'll know who the winner of the Goddesschess/9 Queens Fighting Chess Award is, who will be selected by current Women's World Chess Champion GM Alexandra Kosteniuk.

The games start at 2:00 p.m. today.  My office door will one again be closed and my headphones firmly in place as I follow the action as closely as I can while also trying to get some work done, har!
