Two rounds to go and anything can still happen in Doha at the Women’s Grand Prix. Humpy is doing her part by winning today while her rival Nana Dzagnidze lost to Zhu Chen. Sebag drew against former women’s world champion Chiburdanidze and Danielian is in a very difficult position against Pia Cramling.

Update: Cramling converted her advantage to a full point. Now only 1/2 point separates Danielian, Sebag and Koneru going into the final round tomorrow!
