Congratulations Yulia! aka Russian WGM Galianina-Ryjanova, Julia

Yulia has proven why she is the 7th highest ranked Russian WGM in the world, and Rank 44 overall in the World FIDE list -

If members of the team want to send her a message, goodies, handshakes, etc, her homepage is the following link:-

And goodies giving link is:-

Give Yulia a goodie!

She may be more keen to give us a rematch next year, especially I think if we heartily congratulate her on her victory against us

Best wishes

Hi kingscrusher,

I agree, we should resign this game now. It is a bit impolite to protract this clearly lost game without any sense.

In some of my former posts I admired the excellent positional play of Yulia and we have to give her all the credit. Congratulations Yulia !!

Best regards

Hi all

I think it is time to shake hands in this game and politely resign.

Yulia has indicated that she may be interested in rematch next year, and I think we should now resign. Given the current poll, and our position (a piece down), we should resign now before the move vote deadline.

If there not any strong objections, I will resign this game in a few hours time.

Best wishes
