Default Sensational News: A previously unknown woman is on the brink ofwinning the World Open Chess Championship.

Sensational News: A previously unknown woman is on the brink of winning the World Open Chess Championship. No woman has ever done this before or even come close. Moreover, she is only 17. Zhansaya Abdumalik is from Kazakstan. She defeated several grandmasters. She is playing on Board One and is now tied for the lead. She has the advantage in her last round game. If she wins this last round game she will be at minimum in a two-way tie for first and there will be a blitz playoff. If the other last round game on the top boards is not decisive she will be the sole winner of the World Open Championship.
She started with a rating far down the list and was little noticed until this round when she suddenly appeared on Board One.

Zhansaya Abdumalik drew her last round game and Tigran Petrosian won his last round game so Tigran Petrosian is the World Open Chess Champion. Zhansaya Abdumalik tied for second with several others. Tigran Petrosian also won the World Open Blitz Championship last night beating Samuel Sevian 2-0 in the final match.

If you go by Elo ratings then World Champion Tigran V Petrosian is the second strongest Tigran Petrosian in history.

LOL. In today's 2700Chess list he would be rated something like #139 and not even get invited to the top tournaments.
