    Not seeing any video commentary for the playoff (which has started - 2 hours early today), just seems to be replaying Game 4 video.

    [edit : fixed now]

    Playoff 1 Ju - Lagno. Black's position looked dodgy in the endgame but she was able to hold it.

    Playoff 3 Lagno - Ju. Lagno blundered a pawn in the endgame then made at least one more defensive error.

    ...and they're off in Tie-break game 4, with Lagno needing to win to stay alive in the Championship:

    Whoops - looks like a queen blunder decides the World Championship in Ju's favour...

    Lagno blunders queen but wasn't winning anyway. Ju Wenjun retains Women's World Championship. Hopefully a Ju-Hou match coming up after the new Candidates cycle!

    The Champion Ju Wenjun retains the title she won only 6 months ago so a modicum of justice

    Yes it is a good outcome. And for the most part she played very well, including today.

    Morozevich and Kosteniuk copping some flak for biased commentary tonight.

    "non-stop slacking of Ju Wenjun for her play in the tiebreaks" - IM Kevin Goh
    "Indeed, it was amazing that Morozevich could not be bothered to find out who the Chinese captain GM Yu Shaoteng was, even though he admitted to seeing him every day (and Kosteniuk thought he might be an IM). But calling Ju's play "anti-chess" was simply disgraceful. " - GM Ian Rogers

    (etc)

    Yeah, Lagno could have just played 23. Bxb2, and they could agree a draw right there with no whingers from the peanut gallery. There seem to have been an above-average number of opposite-coloured bishops in this match.

    After struggling for most of the last game Lagno finally got sufficient counterplay, made things complicated...then blundered her queen.

    that is the shame of having the championship decided by quickies. If instead co-champions would be declared with split prize money etc. it may prove an incentive to take more risks.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land
