|Oct-03-10|| ||siggemannen: Good result at the recent Olympiad, saving the first team a couple of times.
Will be interesting to see her against stronger competition to see if she can maintain the recent form.|
|Oct-06-10|| ||tamar: 6.5 points out of 7 for 2693 performance rating at Olympiad.|
At first she was playing alternately with Gallimova, but it was impossible to keep her out of the lineup, and she played and won in rds 9, 10 and 11.

My usual 2 cents on 'Scacchi Internazionali':
|Aug-28-11|| ||plimko: Valentina Gunina is the new Russian Women Champion, in the last round draw in 21 moves with Kovanova. She played several interesting games with nice combinative style.
|Aug-28-11|| ||twinlark: Congratulations, Valentina Gunina!|
|Aug-29-11|| ||BIDMONFA: Valentina Gunina|
|Mar-09-12|| ||Penguincw: Gunina won her game against Hoang Thanh Trang with white (V Gunina vs Hoang Thanh Trang, 2012) to tie a top the standings with Cristina Adela Foisor. Both have 5 wins, and 2 draws. |
A little bit of breathing room, with only 2 players half a point back and 8 one full point behind.
I believe tomorrow they will battle it out for first (only 2 rounds left).
|Mar-13-12|| ||stanleys: Congratulations to Valentina for winning the European women championship!|
World title is the only one she doesn't hold (yet)
|Mar-13-12|| ||Harvestman: Congratulations. Winning against the leader (and highest rated player) in the final round to take the title on tiebreaks.|
|Jun-05-12|| ||twinlark: Well done and congratulations to IM Gunina for taking out the World Women's Blitz with her incredible score. Out of 15 games, she drew 4 and won the rest.|
|Jun-06-12|| ||ketchuplover: cosigned!|
|Jun-06-12|| ||whiteshark: I'm in!|
|Jun-07-12|| ||stanleys: Congratulations to Valentina! (Besides her incredible chess talent she is also the most smiling player in the world in my opinion)|

|Dec-12-12|| ||John Abraham: Baby faced killer!|
|Feb-04-13|| ||Llawdogg: Happy 24th Birthday!|
|Mar-07-13|| ||HeMateMe: She's a Murmansker. I don't think they serve tropical drinks in the bars, up there. Even the polar bears wear wetsuits.|
|Mar-08-13|| ||John Abraham: Valentina played a wonderful game recently...full of tactics and ideas, it's a very beautifully complex game...wonderful play|
V Gunina vs Ju Wenjun, 2013
|Mar-08-13|| ||HeMateMe: ^^Definitely an exciting game. Carlsen had a similar position in London I think, this year, but with fewer pieces on the board. One of those games where the defenders rooks are badly coordinated and multiple threats hang everywhere.|
|May-07-13|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Grats to Valya on becoming the 29th woman in chess history to earn the GM title.|
