Most of the 8th round games at Women's Grand Prix were drawn. In the only decisive game Antoaneta Stefanova defeated Nafisa Muminova who definietely has a unsuccessful stage.

The top of the table hasn't changed: Hou Yifan leads confidently being 1.5 points ahead of her nearest rivals Ju Wenjun and Nana Dzagnidze. Only three roudns are left till the end of the competition.

The champion played lower than her usual level against Harika, made several inaccuracies and hardly can be unhappy with grabbing half a point. Two Chinese, HOu Yifan's nearest rivals, faced each other and finished their game peacefully in a complicated middle game.

Humpy Koneru again missed a chance, overall this is not her best stage, as well as it is not successful for Russian Kosteniuk.  

KONERU - KOSTENIUK

White outplayed Black already after the opening and had an extra piece for some dozen of moves. Black looked for practical chances... And eventually Indian was caught in one fo the traps: 34. Kg2? Rxf2+! 35. Bxf2 (if white takes with a king, it will be checkmated 35...Qa2+) 35...Qg4+ (and it turns out that White can't escape a perpetual check) 36. Kh2 Qh5+ 37. Kg2 Qg4+ 38. Kh2 Qh5+ 39. Kg2 Qg4+ 40. Kh2, ничья.

June 28 is the second and last free day at the competition.
