One of the main contenders for the title, Russia, continue trailing near the end of the table with 2 draws and 1 lost match. This time Russia was held by Armenia after WFM Gunina and WGM Galojan achieved victories for each team, while the top two boards finished draw.

IM Goletiani and WIM Melekhina drew their games, and it was WFM Abrahamian Tatev who saved the day for the American team.

China finally recovered and won their match against India 3:1. IM Harika and WGM Karavade held their opponents to draw, but GM Zhao Xue and WGM Huang Qian gave the convincing victory to China.

With the same score Georgia defeated Ukraine to take clear second position, a point behind Poland.
