Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-19  botvinnik64: WenJun in the lead with Goryachkina close behind after 4 rounds. I am waiting for their head to head to get a preview of their match in January, 2020. This event should go down to the last round. Exciting games.
Sep-14-19  goodevans: Kashlinskaya wins a nice game in round 4 through sustained pressure to somewhat make up for her ignominious round 3 loss: Koneru vs A Kashlinskaya, 2019
Sep-14-19  botvinnik64: @goodevans - yeah, Kash played horribly in round 3; perhaps because her husband (Radoslaw W) had just been eliminated by an "unknown?"
Sep-19-19  botvinnik64: WenJun is running away with this. Will the match in 2020 w Goryachkina be any different?
Sep-20-19  PhilFeeley: Can't say WenJun is running away with this anymore. I'm surprised at those at the bottom.
Sep-20-19  botvinnik64: WenJun has already won this with only three rounds to go - Humpy will not catch her, I am afraid, although I was rooting for Goryachkina.
Sep-20-19  Fish55: Wow - Ju was not able to handle being on the defensive against Gunina. It's advantage Koneru now.
Sep-20-19  JimNorCal: I believe it was Lagno who beat Ju not Gunina. Humpy plays Lagno next round.

Last round will be Ju vs Humpy. Could be a deciding high-stakes game!

Sep-20-19  botvinnik64: Wow! Just when it looked as if WJJU would run away with this - so, the last round is Ju v Humpy?! Couldn't be better!

  Everett: How’s the lower Elo league doing?
Sep-22-19  PhilFeeley: So Humpy wins. Good for her.

  Check It Out: Wenjun v. Koneru final round was a fairly bloodless draw. Congrats Humpy!
Sep-22-19  JimNorCal: Yes, Humpy controlled her nerves. GM Ju softened. She lost in the penultimate round and could only draw as black in the final. One of the other ladies finished strong to tie for second place.
Sep-22-19  botvinnik64: So Humpy is ready to fight for the title in...2022. Will she be facing AG or WJJ? Stay tuned, January, 2020 is not so far away...
