The Grand Prix: Hou Yifan Was Helpless Against Viktorija Cmilyte's Bishop Pair

Today is the first free day in the Women's Grand Prix series tournament in Kazan. The exciting fourth round was held yesterday; it's worth distinguishing three results from there.

Kosintseva sisters had different outcomes with Black in the same variation of the Nimzo-Indian Defence. Nadezhda didn't have serious problems in her encounter against Alisa Galliamova, and concluded the game successfully by using her opponent's mistake. Tatiana wasn't able to solve all of her opening problems in the encounter with Elina Danielian. After this win, the Armenian is now the sole leader with 3 points.

From the decisive games, Chess-News again brings to attention the win by Viktorija Cmilyte. This time Hou Yifan herself was floored. The Chinese used a new plan with White in the 4.Qxd4 variation of the Sicilian Defence, but it's unlikely that it would be considered successful. Viktorija gained the bishop pair advantage and used it very professionally; at some point, she even spared an exchange to gain a positional advantage. The Champion couldn't save the game.
