FIDE Women Grand Prix Tashkent – Top three players defeated

In the curious ninth round of the FIDE Women Grand Prix that is currently ongoing in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, top three placed players have all suffered losses, but Humpy Koneru continues to lead the standings full point ahead of the nearest followers.

Koneru erred immediately after the time control to quickly go down against the winner of the first FIDE Women Grand Prix in Geneva IM Bela Khotenashvili.

At the same time former world champion Alexandra Kosteniuk defeated Harika Dronavalli, while Zhao Xue outplayed Kateryna Lagno.

Khotenashvili joined Dronavalli and Lagno on the shared second place.
