The last stage of the women's Grand Prix 2013-2014 started in UAE. Humpy Koneru and Hou YIfan are fighting for overall victory in the Series. Today they both faced the outsiders. 

MUMINOVA - HOU YIFAN

It seems that the black rook and bishop lost coordination on the king's flank taking each other's positions. However, Black is still better, soon the world champion's pieces dominated the board, White resigned after next fifteen moves.

The first round turned out to be disastrous for Koneru. 

TUVSHINTUGS - KONERU

Indian player missed a chance to develop the advanatge several times, in a time trouble she lost control over the position entirely. 
31...e5?! A serious weaknening after which Black should be accurate in every move. Different scenario could have taken place after 31...Nd4.
32.Qc2 Nd6? Koneru had to find the only correct moves: 32...Re3 33.Bc1 exf4 34.Bxe3 fxe3+ 35.Ke1 Rd8 and here try to hold.
33.Qd3 Rd8 34.fxe5 fxe5 35.Bxe5 Kf7 36.Qd5+ 1-0
