    whoa by the where is zu chen these days haven't heard from her much. Think she was training with Morozevich recently. Not sure. Will women's chess be as strong as women's ever?

    Take a look at 9.Qe2 played by Morozevich in the second round at the Russian Superfinal. Only Morozevich can play that.
