Yildiz,Betul Cemre - Kosintseva,Tatiana

FIDE Women's Grand Prix Ankara, 26.09.2012
Tatiana's intentions to play for a win were obvious from the very begining of this game as she picked up a sideline against 2.c3 in Sicilian just to avoid simplifications. However Betul played in very solid positional maner so there were no real chances for Black to complicate matters, and after pushing too much Kosintseva eventually lost.
Round 9 report

IMG 4517

 The key game of the tournament between Humpy Koneru and Anna Muzyhcuk, who have the best chances for the second place in the Grand Prix Series, happened in the ninth round. The leader of the tournament Humpy Koneru chose a bit passive strategy and was defeated by Anna Muzychuk. Thus Slovenian player became the sole leader half a point above two rounds to go. Former world champion scored first full point in the tournament by winning against Kubra Ozturk who sacrificed a pawn in the middle game but didn’t get enough compensation later on. Tatiana Kosinsteva committed three times the same mistake until Betul Yildiz found the winning move and converted the score in her favor. Zhao Xue was persistent in finding winning chances against Monika Socko and eventually succeeded to take the full point. Two more games could be decisive today if Viktorija Cmilyte and Ju Wenjun would manage to convert their advantage into more.
