16-year-old Carissa Yip beats Women’s World Champion Ju Wenjun with the black pieces!

A 16 éves Carissa Yip nyert a világbajnoknő Ju Wenjun ellen, Koneru vezet. Nem véletlen céloztam a korábbi bejegyzésemben a kis Yipre,fogunk még róla hallani. De azt mindenképp érdemes hozzáfűzni, hogy Yu nemrég nyert világbajnokságot és vállalta a verenyt. És a díjazások is komolyak.

This Tournament, a nine-round classical event, will not only be one of the largest prize funds for a women’s tournament, it promises to be the strongest female tournament ever held in the world. The top three finishers will receive $45,000, $35,000, and $25,000 respectively.

Standings after 8:

1. Humpy Koneru – 5.5 2. Alexandra Kosteniuk – 5 3-4. Ju Wenjun, Marya Muzychuk – 4.5 5-7. Kateryna Lagno, Dronavalli Harika, Nana Dzagnidze – 4 8. Carissa Yip – 3.5 9. Irina Krush – 3 10. Valentina Gunina – 2.

Round 9 pairings:

Harika – Koneru, Kosteniuk – Ju Wenjun, Yip – M. Muzychuk, Krush – Dzagnidze, Gunina – Lagno. The main sensation of the eighth round of the Cairns Cup in Saint Louis was the reigning world champion Ju Wenjun’s loss against the youngest participant Carissa Yip. Alexandra Kosteniuk defeated Nana Dzagnidze, while Valentina Gunina lost to Humpy Koneru. The games M. Muzychuk – Harika and Lagno – Krush were drawn.
