Half a point till the end

Another win in the seventh game of the match for the World Championship that takes place in Tirana, Albania made Hou Yifan three-point lead 5-2.

According to the rules the match consists of ten games, which means Hou Yifan needs only one draw to guarantee her overall victory. Even the next game can become decisive. Ad interim the situation seems pretty hopeless for Koneru who – and it’s extremely hard to believe she will manage that – has to win three games in a row.
