Hou Yifan wins the Women's World Chess Championship Match
Friday, 02 December 2011 15:04

The 8th game of the match was drawn – and Hou Yifan (China) wins the World championship match against Humpy Koneru (India) with 5.5 – 2,5 score.

The match was to consist of 10 games but Hou Yifan got the decisive 5,5 points already after 8 encounters. In the last, eighth game, Humpy Koneru needed only to win to stay in the match, but the Chinese player was accurate to equalize with Black and secure a draw.

The closing ceremony of the match will be held as scheduled on the 30th of November. The players have a few days to explore Tirana and Albania.
