Re: The Evgenia Linetskaya Thread

Linetskaya has been appearing in the alternates list for a couple of weeks now, in 25k tournies in Moscow, without much chance to get into the draw.
My understanding of this is she got tired of the long road to entering the rankings through 10ks and is now trying her luck at an easier path. Maybe she's staying in Moscow with friends, hoping at the last minute a ready and available alternate is needed...?
This is a pretty bad sign, that she doesn't have the strength/persistence/ability to go the distance in 10ks to quickly enter the rankings in a "clean" way
