Hou Yifan wins Ataturk Chess tournament

Hou Yifan wins by a full point

ataturk masters

The young Chinese chess star Yifan won the IsBank-Ataturk International Women Masters Chess Tournament with the fantastic score of 7,0/9. She did not lose a single game and with 5 wins and 4 draws did not leave any chance to the other participants.

Second place was for the strong Swedish GM Pia Cramling. She could have been even higher in the standing if it were not for the loss from IM Lela Javakhishvili in round 8.

Local heroes IM Ekaterina Atalik and Cemre Betul Yildiz had nice performance as well. Atalik finished in the top half of the table and was stable throughout the whole tournament. Cemre Betul Yildiz managed to grab victories against Irina Krush and Lela Javakhishvili.
