Arianne Caoili nearing the title in London Womens' Invitational

Updates from London Chess Classic Womens' Invitational where Fil-Aussie and one of the darling of women chess, WIM Arianne Caoili is currently competing and performing quite well. Caoili (2206) still comfortably holding to her lead by a full point ahead of her nearest pursuers, top seed IM Susan Lalic (2301) of England and Arlette Van Weersel (2193) of the Netherlands with two more rounds to play. So far the second seed Caoili posted a total of 6 points after 7 rounds but most notably, she scores her fourth straight wins in the tournament after losing to top seed and International Master, Susan Lalic in the third round. If what we have here is a tabloid type of a blog, one might as well call Caoili's performance thus far in London as really "hot" and "almost there" (for the title). But she's still part Pinay to term her winning streak that way :)
