[quote="Mick Norris"]Jovanka drew again, I couldn't work out if she was winning or losing for some of the game, she is now 14th on tiebreak /quote]

For the first 36 moves I thought that she completely outplayed her opponent but sadly Ng4 let the advantage slip and at the end Qg4 instead of Qh3 towards the end would have put her in trouble.

Good to see Meri get off the mark and Svetlana Sucikova continued her run of draws against 2200s :)

That's good news, Jovanka doesn't currently look likely to win I fear

Edit and she lost :(
