On the first board former World champion Antoaneta Stefanova made a draw with Salome Melia. A horrible day for the Armenian players as all five of them suffered losses.

Muzychuk’s sisters played next to each other and both run into quite dangerous positions but eventually managed to pull two draws.

Hilal Ozturk holds the best result among the Turkish players. She defeated Anastasia Savina whose rating is 550 points higher.
