IM Elizabeth Pähtz has been very active with matches lately. In early July, she made it all the way to the final at the Women’s World Chess Cup against me (she lost .5 – 1.5). Later that month, Pähtz played a 6-game match against American IM Irina Krush and lost 2.5 – 3.5. Now, she is in a match against Russian Kosteniuk (2-2 tie after 4 games) in Mainz.
