Both top games of round ten ended with a draw. Sabrina Vega and Anna Ushenina drew after 17 moves and without a real fight, while Elisabeth Pähtz and Natalija Pogonina were looking for a fight. The two draws on the top board allowed Lilit Mkrtchian, who won against Jolanta Zawdzka, to catch up to Vega and Paehtz. Thus, after ten rounds Anna Ushenina is still sole leader with 8.0/10, half a point ahead of Elisabeth Pähtz, Sabrina Vega and Lilit Mkrtchian.

Where is the report for the final round?
I'm sorry for Ms Pähtz losing against Ms Vega
snosko snosko 6/8/2016 08:26
indeed. To help the refereee the king of the colour that has won the game is put in the middle of the board (both when draw)
If Buksa played Kf3 and without pressing the button in the clock Bodanaruk resigned the game is stored with the aforementioned Ke5 move when if legal.

Wow, I had a quick look at some games, and I really enjoyed Bodnaruk Buksa!!! However the last move in that game has got to be a typo, right???
