They're Challenging the Champion

Koneru and Muzychuk won in Kazan and maintained a chance to fight  for the overall first place in the Grand Prix 

As the readers of Chess-News already know the 4th stage of the Women's Grand Prix has finished with the joint victory of Humpy Koneru and Anna Muzychuk. Koneru took first on a tie-break, but the prize money as well as the grand prix points will be shared because the players scored the same number of tournament points. 

This time the World Champion Hou Yifan, who is the winner of the first two stages and who, as planned, didn't participate in the 3rd one, managed to share 3rd-4th places due to her win over Elina Danielian in the last round. The tournament turned out to be quite tough for the Chinese player (it's enough to remember her loss against the outsider Betul Yildiz in Round 2). Danielian also had hard times. After being a sole leader she lost three games in a row.

From a perspective of a victory in the series, the Kazan stage deprived most of the participants such a hope.

Hou Yifan maintains lead - she has 420 grand prix points after three series (160 + 160 + 100).  

Grand prix points are allocated according to each player's standing in the tournament: 160 grand prix points for first place, 130 for second place, 110 for third place, and then 90 down to 10 points by steps of 10. Players only counted their best three tournament results. There's no any guarantee that any of the opponents of the World Champion will manage to surpass her. According to our non-official records, only four players, in the case of a perfect performance, have a chance to challenge Hou Yifan. Those are Anna Muzychuk, she has 375 points after three performances (100 + 130 + 145), Zhao Xue - 235 points (75 + 100), Koneru (65 + 145) and Ju Wenjun - 230 (100 + 130).

As you know the players are fighting not only for the victory in the series but for the right to challenge the World Champion.

Last two stages will be held on July 16th-30th in Jermuk, Armenia and in Fall in Turkey. The information on the Turkish stage published on grandprix.fide.com and fide.com differs; if one can trust any of the calendars (usually you should be careful with this kind of information) then it should probably be the last one, which says: Mardin, September 15th-30th. 

Here you can find the games of the winners of the Kazan stage:
