Kazan FIDE Women Grand Prix – Round 6

The fourth stage of FIDE Women’s Grand Prix Series 2011-2012 is taking place from June 10th to 22nd in Kazan (Russia).

Elina Danielian defeated Nadezhda Kosinteseva and again assumed the sole lead in the tournament.

World champion Hou Yifan got better position in the middle game against Antoaneta Stefanova and later on launched a decisive attack on the black’s king.

Despite playing with black pieces, Katerina Lahno fought for the initiative from the very beginning trying to take advantage of the bad placement of white knight in the game against the local celebrity Alisa Galliamova. Being short with time, Alisa didn’t defend with precision and lost the game.
