Cross table incomplete. Result of rd.9 Sebag - Goryachkina not entered.

The photo of Goryachkina staring at her opponent is interesting. I've often seen similar pix of top players staring at the opponent. Are the players coached to do this, as a means of 'psyching out' their opponents? It's really not very attractive, for guys or women, to stare like a dead fish.... :)

Goryachkina played the same draw on rounds 3 and 9. With black. Rest day or solid repertoire?
