Hi everyone,

The news from Doha, Qatar, where the sixth Women's Grand Prix has seen two rounds so far, is that Nana Dzagnidze and Elina Danielian lead with a perfect score. They beat Munguntuul Batkhuyag and Maia Chiburdanidze in Round 2. Meanwhile, Marie Sebag defeated Xu Yuhua. The only game drawn was between Zhu Chen and Pia Cramling. You can find more details and press conference quotes at the official website here.

Meanwhile, here are nice Round 2 games. You will love them for sure. Enjoy.

    Holy Cow! This event has not gone at all like one would have thought before hand. How exciting! Glad to see Sebag with a nice win - we want more, more! Dzagnidze is just dangerous, period. Everyone should watch out for her.
