Game of the day - round 8
IMG 0183 (1) Hou,Yifan - Ushenina,Anna [B51]

Fondation Neva Women's Grand Prix Geneva (8.3), 11.05.2013


It was a game of the tournament for both players-in September they will play match for World Championship title in home city of Hou Yifan.So,this game was a real warming up for girls or ,maybe,game 0!Moment zero.Now they really understand the power of the opponent.I would not overestimate or underestimate the result.Of course,it can have different impact on players and it is not clear what is better. Of course,it always good to win,but...Let us wait and enjoy their fantastic fight!
Four decisive games in the round 8. Muzychuk and Khotenashvili still tied for the first place.
IMG 0226 In the eighth round of Neva Fondation Women Grand Prix the game between two leaders Anna Muzycuk and Bela Khotenashvili finished in a draw and both players keep on leading before the free day.

Fondation Neva Women's Grand Prix Geneva (7.6), 10.05.2013


1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Bxc6 Very interesting choice of Muzychuk ,as Kosinceva is big specialist of main lines and Muzychuk herself is the best technician among girls.So,her idea to play Fischer variation is fantastic technical and psychological choice! 4...dxc6 5.0–0 Bd6 This line became popular recently,but in my opinion it is much more passive than other lines.
No draws in the seventh round. Muzychuk and Khotenashvili are leading.
IMG 0038 It’s well-known that women play uncompromised chess, so all six games were decisive at the round seven of Neva Fondation Women Grand Prix in Geneva.  The victories of Black outnumbered White’s success with 5 to 1.
