I want to clarify what I meant when I repled to tenn_ace that yes, I have changed my mind regarding my first post.
What I meant, and should have said, was that I've changed my mind about what I said in the beginning portion
of that post:
"I think we can rule out those two players immediately in this discussion"
(referring to Elena D. & Anna K.).
(Though I still believe we can rule out Anna, until she proves otherwise.)
In other words, I did not mean to imply that I suddenly believe Elena D. has vaulted to the top spot among Russians in mental strength. I DID mean that it is DEFINITELY no longer the case that she can be ruled out of the running before the discussion even begins.
