111011-xue.jpgThe representative of the national Chinese team Zhao Xue came out to the absolute first place in the third stage of women’s Grand Prix FIDE which is being held now in Nalchik (Russia, Kabardino-Balkaria). She was the one of all participants who managed to win all three initial games.

On Tuesday Chinese sportswoman with white pieces defeated Alisa Galliamova. Russian chess player with black pieces gradually equalized the game after the opening. But then started to play desperately and on the 30 move she made a mistake and lost the pawn. Zhao took a good advantage of her opponent’s mistake and in the endgame she confidently realized her extra material.
Two more games ended with a successful result in the third round. N.Kosintseva defeated  A.Kosteniuk (both from Russia). In this game comparatively equal play was going on for a long time but on the 38 move Alexandra didn’t notice tactical strike and soon found herself in the losing endgame. Zhu was stronger than Munguntuul Batkhuyag this day: Mongolian chess player had unfortunate opening and already by the 20th move  she lost a piece.

Three games ended in a draw. Antoaneta Stefanova (Bulgaria) – Viktorija Cmilyte (Lithuaia), Tatiana Kosintseva (Russia) - Ju Wenjun (China), Kateryna Lahno (Ukraine) – Ekaterina Kovalevskaya (Russia).
