Women's World Chess Championship Round 3: Hou Yifan Leads by Two Points

Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hi everyone, 
Former Women's World Chess Champion, Hou Yifan appears to be heading for a one-sided victory as Challenger against reigning Women's World Chess Champion Anna Ushenina.

Hou Yifan won the third game of the Women’s World Championship Match on Saturday and is now two points ahead of Anna Ushenina. The event is being held in Taizhou, China. Although both opponents seemed well-prepared in the sharp line of Nimzo-Indian, Black’s 15...Rc8 forced World Champion to sink into deep thought. 

After 40 minutes Anna Ushenina came up with a dubious decision which turned out to be the start of her troubles. Hou Yifan didn’t miss her chance to fight for initiative, made few very precise decisions and after 24 moves the game was over. You can replay the game with Chess King.

Here is another nice chess video that we recall and you would enjoy watching for sure:
