Victory in Skokie, Et Cetera

After the first three games of her four-round match with Armenian Women’s Champion IM Lilit Mkrtchian ended in draws, U.S. Women’s Champion IM Irina Krush pulled out a victory last night in the final game at the Skokie Holiday Inn. See it here. I guess that means she wins the match, right?

Many congratulations on your 200th post. That's a great feat nowadays. I'm considering rejoining the blogging ranks since my work may call for it, so I'll be looking to you for advice!
