Take a look at the endgame of the encounter that has just finished in Khanty-Mansiysk.

58.f8Q Nd5+ 59.Kf7 Bxf8 60.Kxf8 Kf5 61.Nf7 Nf4 62.Kg7 Nd3 63.Bf6 b2
Assess the moves yourself. Actually there can be simultaniously several diagrams at this point. I will add one more.

Let's forget of the achievememnts these players had in past - both are former knock-out world champions. I also won't stress this is a game from the Grand Prix i.e. from the series of the major competitions in FIDE calendar; finding the sponsorship  (relatively good) for such is of no ease and seemingly only the very best players must be participating and fighting for the title. 

And here's my simple question to our readers - should we be covering the chess part of women's chess in any way? Or is it enough just to post results, standings and photos?
