Two games of the conclusive rounds finished. The games of Stefanova against Xu Yuhua and Ushenina against Koneru ended with the draw. Thus Antoaneta Stefanova became the winner of the “North Urals Cup 2008” with 4.5 points of 7 possible.

Antoaneta won Koneru, Pogonina and Sebag and lost to Cramling. All the rest games ended with the draw. We would like to remind that Stefanova is a constant participant of the “North Urals Cup”.

This year she play for the sixth time but before she never won the tournament. We congratulate the Queen!
