In Chakvi, the fifth round of the European Women's Championship has ended. Top board saw the meeting between the 100% scorer Mihaela Sandu and Lela Javakhishvili, who was half a point behind her. Both players, bluntly speaking, failed to show a level of play worthy of the championship lead, but at the decisive moment, it was the Georgian player who committed the mistake. 


Sandu: 5 out of 5! Now the little-known Romanian will be taken more seriously.

On the next board, Nino Batsiashvili outplayed Ekaterina Kovalevskaya, whilst Olga Girya did the same to Alina Kashlinskaya.
