Gibraltar: 3 female players are among the leaders after 3 rounds

The 3rd round of the Gibraltar Masters was remarkable first and foremost for the 2 crushing victories scored by female GMs over their young but already quite famous opponents. In fact, there's no big surprise that women are doing their best in Gibraltar, since there aren't too many tournaments with female prizes like these. Let us remind you that 3 main awards for women in the Masters are £ 15000, 10000 and 5000 respectively.

JU WENJUN - RAPPORT

Richard Rapport, GM of Hungary rated 2716, has found himself in this unsightly position after yet another opening experiment, one of those he has been long known for. The Chinese player (see the title photo - CN) met it in a very hard manner typical for her male compatriot GMs, which led to the diagram position. Of course, the fight didn't last long: 33...Bg7 34.fxg6 c6 35.dxc6 Bxe5 36.gxf7+ Rxf7 37.Bd5 Bxh2+ 38.Kxh2 Ne6 39.Qg6+ Kf8 40.Qh6+ 1-0

In the opening of the next game, both opponents were experimenting, which hasn't stopped the former World women champion of Bulgaria from outplaying the rating No.6 of France whose Elo is 123 points higher.

STEFANOVA - EDOUARD

20.d5! cxd5 21.Nd4 bxc4 22.Nxe6 fxe6 23.bxc4 Nf7 24.Bc3 Qd6 25.c5 Qa6 26.Bf1 Qc8 27.c6 d4 28.Ba1 Nd5 29.Qg4.

29...Ne5? The decisive error. 29...g5 would have allowed to stay alive even if unwell. If 30.hxg5 then 30...e5.
30.Rxe5 Bxe5 31.Qxg6+ Bg7 32.Bxd4 Nf6 33.Nf3 Rd6 34.c7 Qb7 35.Be5 (35.Be3 wins on the spot but there're already many ways to the victory) 35...Rc8 36.Bxd6 exd6 37.Nd4 Rxc7 38.Rxc7 Qxc7 39.Nxe6 Qf7 40.Qf5 d5 41.Bd3 Qd7 42.g4.

1–0

Both Stefanova and Ju Wenjun are having the perfect score. The incumbent world female champion Hou Yifan has also scored her third win in a row, this time against GM Mohammed Al-Sayed. Overall, there are 13 players who have 3 points; among others, this group includes the 2nd seed Hikaru Nakamura and 15 y.o. prodigy Wei Yi, the triumpher of the recent Challengers in Wijk aan Zee. The latter has got a partial revenge for the troubles of his colleagues by defeating Bela Khotenashvili of Georgia in a convincing manner with Black after the Grunfeld Defence.

After the tense draw in the 2nd round, Veselin Topalov has got a break, as he met no resistance at all in his game vs a 2300+ player (the encounter was by far the first one to finish among those in the live relay). Pentala Harikrishna won an excellent game against Ioan-Christian Chirila which we're publishing as a separate article.
