Some great games, a shame Sabrina couldn't hold but that's one of the reasons I love chess, sometimes you can keep torturing your opponent until he/she crumbles. As evidence for the prosecution, I also cite baord 3; sadly I went to bed before I saw the finish of it last night!

Sabrina drew in the final round to total 4.5/9 for a tournament performance of 2265, against the WIM norm requirement of 2250, so it seems she has secured her second norm. Congratulations!
