WWCC08 – Zatonskih Out


Bummer! Anna fought hard today, needing a win. Unfortunately, she came up just shy of victory when Black escaped with perpetual check.

Our last bastion of hope is Katherine Rohonyan. She’s taken it to the tiebreakers with a nice endgame win. Her solution to the classic “always a draw” opposite-colored bishops? Sac it for a wall of pawns! :)

Five matches are going the distance tomorrow. Should be exciting. I’ve updated the draw HERE.
