    She has a FIDE rating but could not find her in USCF. FIDE as of right now is 1951. That is probably old though.

    Here she is on the USCF site:

    The Grandmaster that she beat, Alexander Ivanov, played really badly in their game. I'd like to see some more games of hers to see if she is as good as people claim.

    Carissa Yip - Alexander Ivanov, New England Open 2014 ·

    White to play.



    White ignored the threat (28...a4) and played 28.Qh5 hitting h7.
    Black deemed the check on h7 as just that, a check and played 28...a4.


    Possibly noting that 29.Rxa4 was not a defence because it unpinned the e6 Knight and Nxg5 would net a piece.

    The lass was not eyeing the h7 square, it was the square d8 that held her interest....and then she took care of that a4 threat.

    EDIT: I confused Alexander Ivanov with the late Igor Ivanov, which was unfair to Alexander. My apologies for anyone who read it.

    1. d4 d5 2. Bf4 e6 3. Nf3 Bd6 4. Bxd6 Qxd6 5. e3 Nf6 6. Nc3 Qb4 7. a3 {OK go on - take it.} 7... Qxb2 {Black may have been thinking White is going to play 7.Nb5 when 7...Na6 is a valid answer.} 8. Na4 {and Black resigned..} [/pgn]
    Saw that on on a Barry Attack video. I think the guys name was Summerfield.

    Here it is on the web! I paid money for it:

    12:34 should put you at the right spot.

    Just checked the RHP DB.

    The player who was white here was called Kasparov. Game 2408544
    He got banned back in 2006.

    It's frightening, to me anyway, that I can recall all or pattern fragments from some
    of the games played on here. Why are the GM games not sticking like these games do?

    Saw the link, slightly different setting but the same theme. Cheers.

    You can now post YouTube liknks, this is me.

    I must admit, the way you did it was much prettier than mine.
