One of the tournament favourites Levon Aronian gained an expected win over Hou Yifan in Round 8.

After giving away her piece on 25th move Chinese player's position wasn't really promising, however, as Levon has mentioned in his official video commentary the endgame was still hard to play. "Although computer thinks it's equal there's a lot of play for both sides." Listen to Armenian GM's commentary at full:
