The Chinese men's and women's teams confidently beat Russia at home in Ningbo. The gentlemen finished their match with a score of 14-11, the ladies - 15-10.

The crushing of the Russian women was the result of their collapse in the last two rounds. Both yesterday and today, Rublevsky's proteges lost 1-4.


A 50% score made Alina Kashlinskaya the best player on the Russian women's team

The Russian men played a more even match overall, but despite a superiority in ratings, proved the weaker side. Maxim Matlakov showed the best result, scoring "+3" - the same as the best Chinese player, Bu Xiangzhi.

  • The first round of the Russia-China match has taken place in Ningbo. 

  • Both the men's and women's matches in round two of the Russia-China match ended in draws. In both cases, the two sides exchanged blows: in the women's event, young wife Alina Kashlinskaya won, but her friend and witness at her wedding, Valentina Gunina, lost; in the men's event, Fedoseev lost, but the Wei Yi - Svidler game ended in favour of the older star, who has been shining for already two decades. 

  • On the fourth day of the friendly match in Ningbo the men's teams drew, but the Russian women suffered a major fiasco, losing 1-4. Now, with one round to go, China lead in both matches, 11.5-8.5 and 11-9.

    FEDOSEEV - YU YANGYI

  • The overall score after three rounds is 16-14 in favour of the hosts

  • In the latest round of the Russian Women's Superfinal, all six games ended decisively. The sole leader Alexandra Goryachkina lost to Anastasia Savina and has now been caught by Alexandra Kosteniuk, who outplayed Gunina, and by Ekaterina Lagno, who beat Pogonina. On the basis of the course of the games, all three results can be considered logical. 

  • Sergey Karjakin singlehandedly takes Russia to victory in unusual match with China

  • A few minutes ago in Chengdu, the seventh round of the women's world team championship ended. The leaders Georgia beat India 2.5-1.5, whilst Russia drew with Kazakhstan.

    It must be admitted that the results could have been worse for both, especially Russia: Gulmira Dauletova was unable to convert to a full point a completely winning position against Alexandra Goryachkina. 

  • Some of today's matches in the women's world team championship ended in draws: India - China, Poland - USA, Russia - Armenia. 

    The failure of the Russians to win can be regarded as the biggest surprise. Girya beat Gaboian on board four, and there were draws between Mrktchian - Pogonina and Goryachkina - Galoian, but Valentina Gunina lost, just as she did yesterday. 

  • A few minutes ago in Chengdu, the eighth and penultimate round of the womens' world team championship ended. Two teams are fighting for victory in the event - Russia and Georgia. Today the Georgians defeated Armenia 3-1, whilst Russia overcame Ukraine 2.5-1.5. The latter key match was clinched by Natalia Pogonina and Olga Girya, who won on boards three and four. The Muzychuk sisters tried to save their team, but only Anna managed to score the full point. 

  • The rivalry between Russia and China continues. It is not ten days since the end of the traditional annual training match between the men and women of the two countries, and now the two teams are again battling each other. But this time with different teams and a very unusual format.
