I saw a couple of the games and I think Hou Yifan demonstrated the utter difference in class between the two. In most of the games, she came out better right out of the openings and Koneru was struggling throughout.

Similar to the first K-K match.. though the better player, Kasparov was struggling at 0-4.. in the second match, Karpov was toppled.

Humpy was more aggressive, with many innovations, maybe too aggressive.. and she lost.. maybe that's the price some of us have to pay for initiating CHANGE.. anyway, thanks Humpy & Yi Fan for a great match! Until next time, Humpy?
