Women's World Championship: Anna Ushenina leads

Anna Ushenina won the third game of the Women's Championship against Bulgarian Stefanova to take a one game lead. The first two games were drawn. This gives Ushenina a 2.5-1.5 lead. As this is a four game match, Stefanova needs to win the next game to tie the match and go into the tie-breaks. Even a draw will give Anna Ushenina the title.

Ushenina's sharp tactics in the third game netted her material advantage. Black's pieces were badly placed and despite some a gallant effort from Black to complicate , white ended up with two rooks and a couple of passed pawns for three minor pieces, there was never any doubt as to the result.

I like to watch Anna Ushenina in the live videos. She has an expressive face and her various nose wrinkling , lips twitching and grimaces are part of the fun watching the match!
