Indian Grandmaster Koneru Humpy beat Ju Wenjun of China in a complicated game during the seventh round at the ongoing Women's Chess Grand Prix in Ankara. This helped Koneru take sole lead.
Anna Muzychuk drew with Zhao Xue and is in second place, half-a-point behind Humpy. After an unpleasant start, Olympic Champion Tatiana Kosintseva of Russia won the second game in a row against Monika Socko and climbed to the middle of the table. The game between Turkish players Betul Yildiz and Kubra Ozturk finished peacefully as well as two other games: Stefanova-Batkhuyag and Cmilyte-Lufei. Zhao Xue and Ruan Lufei share the third place with 4.5 points. Watch the games live on the official website
