Jan-18-16  siggemannen: Feels like Anne messed up a decent game somewhere?
Jan-19-16  Tartalacreme: During the game, I thought that Dreev's idea was 15.Ng5 Nxc4 16.Nd5 with mate threat on h7. According to the computer, this or 15. Nd5 were crushing. However, it was still complicated as black could sac the queen for 3 minors.

"Tournament psychology is a curious animal. In this tournament the WGM player Anne Haast is the lowest rated player, and as such everyone is out to beat her. Probably not used to such a situation, Haast has had a miserable start, playing much lower than her normal level..."
