La ajedrecista vía correo electrónico comunicó que los triunfos que obtuvo fueron ante jugadoras con mayor ELO. Ante Heredia sucumbieron la Gran Maestra peruana Deysi Cori, quien culminó el torneo en el puesto 12 con 8.5 puntos, y llegó como la segunda ranqueada del campeonato. Las Maestras FIDE: Nestorovskaya Anzhelita (Ucrania); la Maestra Fide Tsirulnk Maritsa (Ucrania); Kulon Claudia (Polonia) y Baciu Diana (Moldavia).
Además derrotó a Lepeskaite Migle, campeona de Lituania; y Hoek Adriana, Vicecampeona de Rusia.
“Esta actuación inolvidable, al ganar a jugadoras de mayor experiencia y competir con Maestras de Rusia, Ucrania, Hungría, Bulgaria, Inglaterra, Alemania y Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, me abre la posibilidad de buscar una Norma de Gran Maestra”, señaló Heredia.
Las partidas que perdió fueron ante una Gran Maestra y cinco Maestras Internacionales, rivales de mayor ELO (Ranking Internacional) y experiencia: GM Corke Anya con 2.257 puntos ELO (13 en la clasificación general); WIM Melekhina Alisa, 2.265 (9) WIM Severiukhina Zoja 2.341 (10); WIM Ohme Melanie, 2.326 (15); WIM Ziazivlkina Nastassia, 2.293 (17) y WFM Toth Sarolta con 2.207 (19).
