May-23-07  percyblakeney: Zhao Xue had more or less won this game already by move 20 (with black against a higher rated opponent) after her nice rook sacrifice.

I don't think this should be mentioned as if it is important. The difference is negligible and in a few weeks it could be the other way around.

May-23-07  Knight13: Oh well way too many claim that the higher your rating is the harder it is to gain rating. So 20 points is like 80 point difference in our class rating difference according to percyblankeney I suppose since he mentioned it as an importance? Whatever.

Important or not, I did hide it in a parenthesis :-) Still, having a won position after 20 moves with black isn't bad.
