The roster for the top chess players is too much of a sausagefest. It'd be cool to have a female beat everybody for variety. Carlsen is too cozy up top. :D

Have to watch it from there, the owner of the vid only allows youtube plays from youtube, not other sites. Looks like she won on time.

He shouldn't have taken back his move f5 (when he changed it to g5).

So that's why he didn't need to win by playing f5 in the beginning of the vid?

That makes sense, that you notice these things very quickly.

It's a cruel world, that things start going wrong after mid thirties.

By wrong, I really mean WRONG!

I mean, this is the natural way of things, and it is designed like that for a reason, by a designer (according to our beliefs). That's indeed what is good about it. But it is OK to fight back, too. But not to become an obsessive personality disorder over it.

Well! ANYTHING one does which needs dedication and effort, requires obsession, [by the way, a bit of money can help too] don't kid ourselves.

Anyway, that's enough for this post. (People don't normally appreciate my inputs enough anyway).

And (of topic?), i hope people agree with me that if Adgeston would have played f5 at beginning of video, instead of g5, he probably would have won that game. Nothing too complicated, but the little girl, i think, would have missed it. And earlier on, he probably just threw away material for nothing. He felt there was so little for him to have to worry about from those kids.

It seems to take here a few seconds to realize she's won. Beautiful reaction when she does.
Deasil is the right way to go.

If so, that means she didn't have the slightest idea what she was doing but just made natural moves.

And HE? the GM, he didn't really want her to realize she had won! That was funny!
