PGN 2020.03.01. 4 games. Incomplete. Please help us to complete the games.

2012.04.15-20. Double Round Robin 10 rounds. g/90/30. Rating average 2207. WGM norm 7.5.

The event ended bitter for the first seed WGM Anastasia Gutsko. She placed in the 5th, only one place better than the tailender Indonesian Yemi Jelsen.

Gutsko actually started very well. The Ukrainian WGM beat Jelsen and Russian WGM Anna Burtasova in the first two rounds. In round 3 she was hit by a shameful accident, her cell phone was ringing. She eventually got forfeited. Aside of a “stupid smartphone” expletive, it was unclear how far the unfortunate event had a bearing to her. In the rest of rounds she could only collect 2.5 more VP.

The champion Burtasova had an almost reversed fate of that of Gutsko. She lost her first two games then she allowed only one more loss and one more draw to take the first berth. She successfully made amends to her last year 3rd place.

Indonesian WIM Medina Warda Aulia failed to nail a WGM norm but still made herself as a proud runner-up. One of her noteworthy achievements was whitewashing the first seed Gutsko 2-0 in their direct encounters.

The tailender Jelsen most possibly suffered from stage fright. The Women National Champion 2011 had troubles to hold her own against the overseas WGMs. All of her wins came from her compatriots.
