stefanova-lahno.jpgWGM Anna Sharevich comments on the 7th round games

Stefanova Antoaneta – Lahno Kateryna

The interrupted song of Antoaneta. After three vicrtories in a row the former world champion played too optimistic in the opening and got a little bit worse position. But it didn’t mean that it was lost. Anyway Kateryna outplayed her opponent in the middlegame. Only in a time trouble before the control the Bulgarian player could try to find some chances to save the game. But some no confident moves afforded Katya to win the pawn first and then the game.

“I don’t think that this game will be included in a hundred best games of mine”, admitted Antoaneta with her usual good sense of humour. “Maybe I played not the best way with many mistakes, but nevertheless I won the game and of course satisfied with it”, added Kateryna.

But then the Russian hastened to transfer the game into rook endgame which was impossible to win even with the extra pawn.
