Tan Zhongyi took sole lead of the FIDE Girls’s Candidates with 7.5/11 after beating
Kateryna Lagno in a Reti. Lei Tingjie managed to attract towards Anna Muzychuk and
is half a degree behind. With three rounds to go Kateryna Lagno, Humpy Koneru
and Aleksandra Goryachkina are all on 5.5 factors, realistically it is between
Tan and Lei for the title.


Tan performed a Reti System, 13…e5 from Lagno might have been met by 14.Nxe5 with
benefit however as an alternative a roughly steadiness place was arrived at. 27.Rc5? might
have been refuted by 27…f4 when overloaded items mixed with a kingside assault
win for black. Lagno performed the dropping 28…Bxb3 (28…f4 is the best way to carry the steadiness
now) and Tan made no mistake in changing.



There have been related goings on within the recreation Lei Tingjie towards Anna Muzychuk. After
a Giuoco Piano opening Muzychuk was at the least equal till she failed to search out the
appropriate defence to 19.Bxh6 gxh6? (19…Nh7!) however then Lei performed 22.Nxe5? (22.Kh2!)
and black was higher after which 30.c4? profitable. After 34.Nf5 it got here right down to
whether or not black might keep away from perpetual examine, it was attainable however the best way to
do it wasn’t 42….Bf7? however 42…Ke8 as an alternative. So a draw in the long run.
Humpy Koneru constructed up a profitable place after 30 strikes towards Nurgyul
Salimova as white in a Slav Defence, she made reasonably heavy climate of conversion
however bought there in the long run. Rameshbabu Vaishali gained once more and
Aleksandra Goryachkina misplaced once more. It ended up in a equal however difficult Queen and Pawn endgame
however 64….d4? misplaced and Vaishali made no mistake.
