Liveblog from Kiel Day 1


The games have started

Here comes the live coverage from the Women’s Bundesliga from Kiel where Schwäbisch Hall and Deizisau are playing against Kiel and Hamburg. Saturday at 2pm Kiel plays against Schwäbisch Hall and Hamburg against Deizisau, on Sunday at 9am Deizisau plays against Kiel and Schwäbisch Hall against Hamburg.


Karina won as well, 6-0. So we will see what this is worth, the other games are still running, Baden Baden is up 1-0, Hamburg will probably win.


Karina should also win shortly, she is a piece up in an ending. Hamburg should win, it is still 1-1, but most positions are clearly better.


Katerina won as well, now only Karina is playing, position is more active, but she is in time-trouble.


Jana has won, 4-0, now Karina and Katerina are still playing.


Irina has won, 2-0, Deimante as well, 3-0


Irina should win shortly, Deimante as well. Karina has as always the worse time, position looks equal, Jana is a pawn up, Katerina’s position is not clear, but looks ok.


1-0 for Schwäbisch Hall, Ekaterina Atalik won her position, the white opening went completely wrong. Board 3 (Deimante) is a pawn up after “une petite combinaison”. Irina has sacrificed a pawn, this also looks good. Board 6 (Katerina) with black could secure the bishop pair in a Paulsen Sicilian.


Board 2 Ekaterina Atalik looks already like almost winning, at least clearly better.


The games have been started, Hamburg is playing with almost the best team. Here the pairings:



There are some surprises, especially that Kosteniuk plays for Baden Baden, but more surprises cannot be ruled out for Sunday.

Here some first pictures from Kiel:
