Kateryna Lagno: Draw is okay but I have a feeling that I was better (VIDEO)

The Women’s Candidates Pool B tournament commenced today in Khiva, Uzbekistan after yesterday’s official opening. The event features four players Aleksandra Goryachkina, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Kateryna Lagno and Tan Zhongyi fighting in a knock-out system for a place in the Women’s Candidates finals against Lei Tingjie

Both games on the Day 1 finished in a peaceful manner (Day 1 report can be found here) but it seemed that Lagno had good chances to score a full point. In the post-game interview, Lagno confirmed that she might have missed a chance: “I think I had a slight edge, after she gave me the light-squared bishop, but then I was unable to find the right way to proceed. After that the game is equal, so the draw is OK, but I have the feeling that I was better after the opening”. See the complete interview below.
