he short seven round group stages have already produced intense chess and there will be plenty of tension in the final round 7 on Thursday. Robert Hess won his fourth game in a row to already ensure he makes the semi-finals, Irina Krush started with a loss and then scored 5 wins in a row to qualify. Her major rival Anna Zatonskih at least has qualification back in her own hands. After round 6 she knows a win against Foisor will get her a playoff spot. Gata Kamsky is also pretty close but not totally guaranteed qualification. Read FM Mike Klein's Round 6 report. There are also standings and games below.
