After losing Hou Yifan set in the hall and cried for a while, her mother was trying to calm her down. Then she put herself together and went to the press conference, where she has answered on several questions together with Monika Socko.

Socko: "In general I was less worried today than yesterday. I was of course playing for a draw in the second game, but I also understood that I shouldn't let my opponent to grab initiative. That's why I sacrificed d5-pawn. Then I sacrificed the exchange as well, but I already stopped thinking about pawns and exchange..."
