Jermuk Women's Chess Grand Prix: Martha Fierro's nice win against Xu Yuhua

IM Martha Fierro Baquero of Ecuador

Hello Everybody,

Jermuk Women's Grand Prix 2010 has been a disappointment for IM Fierro Baquero Martha L so far. But, she finally opened her account by scoring a full point against GM Xu Yuhua in the 7th round. It took Fierro some time to decide whether to give up two rooks for the Queen. Finally, she went for it and earned her first point at the Grand Prix.

Her victory got overshadowed in the excellent performance that GM Nana Dzagnidze has shown so far at the tournament.

Here is the Fierro-Yuhua game. You can run it in our pgnplayer or watch it in the flashplayer below.
