Tatiana Kosintseva with crushing score in Nalchik

Women’s Grand Prix in Nalchik, 25 Apr – 8 May 2010

Russian GM Tatiana Kosintseva convincingly won the 3rd FIDE Grand Prix, which concluded today in Nalchik, Russia. Kosintseva collected 9.0 points from eleven games, and finished point and a half ahead of the second placed Yifan Hou.

European champion Pia Cramling and talented Georgian Nana Dzagnidze shared the third place, but Cramling might feel she could have had better placement, as she suffered a defeat against the champion in the penultimate round.
