    Are Ticia, Anna sisters? Same look, same hair - same chess!!! We should have more top tournaments for women. Just one series of Grand Prix is not enough. They should split the men's world championship prize money and give half to women's chess. Women's chess is so much more romantic. Men's chess is increasingly computeronicks.

    Was it not a three-way tie or maybe she won on tiebreak i think. Already looking forward to the women's grand prix beginning tomorrow.

    Women's chess is going to be nowhere near men's chess. It's not something to be debated just a fact to be accepted.

    It's an old discussion. No point wasting time on womens vs mens chess. It's just fun either way - chess chess chess. I like both my daughter and son to play chess. My wife also plays. So who cares really. Also most of these women must be taught by father, brother, friends etc. Chess is chess.
