Great perfomance by Humpy Koneru


Congratulations to Humpy Koneru for her nice perfomance in the 2nd Mayors Cup International Open Chess Tournament, that was held in Mumbai from May 1 till May 9, 2009!

The field was comprised of over 10 men grandmasters, and Humpy did much better than just hold her own, she finished in the top spots 1-4, with a performance of 2640, and without losing a single game, that's great! She continues to prove that she is playing in the 2600+ range, a good sign for the future.

I wish Humpy well for her future tournaments!

    Koneru is very stable player and almost never plays very bad. I thought she would win the last women's world championship. Maybe she will win the next one, unless Hou Yifan continues on her progress line.

    At the world championships she lost to Hou only in the tie-breaks. She was very close to winning.
