Women's Chess Grand Prix in Doha R5: Danielian increases lead to full two points

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Antoaneta Stefanova: That's how
chess can make you happy...
Elina Danielian's powerful performance with five straight victories is the talk of the tournament at the sixth women's chess grand prix currently on in Doha, Qatar. The rest of the competition is a good two points far away with Marie Sebag, Pia Cramling and Martha Fierro at 3 points each. Is she running away with this? Your guess is as good as ours!


... and Maia Chiburdanidze
couldn't agree more!




There have been some super games at the tournament and we hope you've been keeping track with all our posts here at www.chessblog.com.
