  • The Russian women's team has beaten China again. They did so at the Tromso Olympiad, thanks to Ekaterina Lahno's victory over Hou Yifan, and now, in the world team championship, the girls easily coped without their leader, even two leaders, since Valentina Gunina did not play.

    The failure of the Russians to win can be regarded as the biggest surprise. Girya beat Gaboian on board four, and there were draws between Mrktchian - Pogonina and Goryachkina - Galoian, but Valentina Gunina lost, just as she did yesterday. 

  • Georgia and Russia sign peace

  • A few minutes ago in Chengdu, the eighth and penultimate round of the womens' world team championship ended. Two teams are fighting for victory in the event - Russia and Georgia. Today the Georgians defeated Armenia 3-1, whilst Russia overcame Ukraine 2.5-1.5. The latter key match was clinched by Natalia Pogonina and Olga Girya, who won on boards three and four. The Muzychuk sisters tried to save their team, but only Anna managed to score the full point.

  • A few minutes ago in Chengdu, the seventh round of the women's world team championship ended. The leaders Georgia beat India 2.5-1.5, whilst Russia drew with Kazakhstan.

    It must be admitted that the results could have been worse for both, especially Russia: Gulmira Dauletova was unable to convert to a full point a completely winning position against Alexandra Goryachkina. 

  • The Times of India reports that the strongest Indian player Humpy Koneru won't play got the national team at the upcoming Olympiad which will be held in Turkey. Her father and coach Ashok said: "Humpy would not like to talk anything about the Olympiad."

  • In Ningbo, the traditional friendly match between men's and women's teams of China and Russia has started. The teams bear a more or less experimental line-up.
