In the first rapid game, the Russian WGM chose the Volga Gambit as well as in the 2nd regular encounter that had proved successful for her, and was victorious again. The Chinese tried the King's Indian in the return game but eventually ended up in a lost position, where Pogonina decided to be content with a draw. Thus, the Championship will go on without Chinese players, while the only remaining Russian participant will fight in the semifinals against the winner of Cramling - A.Muzychuk match.
