GM Viktorija Cmilyte had to skip the Tashkent Grand Prix due to illness and her place went to WGM Guliskhan Nakhbayeba of Kazakhstan. We wish GM Viktorija Cmilyte good health.

Two of the six Women's chess grand prix events have taken place so far as part of the 2013-2014. GM Anna Muzichuk is currently leading with 250 points, GM Nana Dzagnidze is right behind with 220, and third is GM Tatiana Kosintseva, who has replaced her sister Nadezhda for the entire Grand Prix Series, with 190. Our regular Chess Blog readers would know that GM Nadezhda Kosintseva has joined UT Dallas in the United States.
