Kateryna Lagno vs Tan Zhongyi; Women’s Candidates Pool B Game 2 LIVE

The Women’s Candidates Pool B tournament kicked off yesterday in Khiva, Uzbekistan with two draws. Though it seemed that both Kateryna Lagno and Aleksandra Goryachkina had their chances to score the full point in the first game, both games eventually ended in a peaceful manner. Tan Zhongyi escaped from slightly worse position and Lagno revealed in the post-game interview that she couldn’t find the right way to keep the advantage: “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”. (Day 1 report can be found here)

Kateryna Lagno will today take White pieces against Tan Zhongyi. Follow the game live:
