Congratulations to Anna Ushenina - Women's World Chess Champion 2012

Hi everyone,

Congratulations to Anna Ushenina for winning the Women's World Chess Championship 2012. She won the second game of the tiebreak played in Khanty Mansiysk to take the title. The first game of the tiebreak was drawn. Ushenina was rated only 30 in the 64-player knockout tournament. Stefanova made Ushenina struggle right down to the rope in a Rook and pawn endgame. But, Ushenina had two connected passers and there was no blundering away the endgame. Stand by for more updates. Join the final press conference live at the official website
