Sharjah will host the last stage of the women's Grand Prix

The opening ceremony of the last stage of women's Grand Prix is scheduled to take place at 16:30 in Sharjah today. The venue of the event has changed after Erdenet, Mongolia couldn't host the event due to the illness of the president of the federation - this was the explanation Kirsan Ilyumzhinov provided at the recent FIDE Congress. Thus, Batmicheg Tuvshintugs representing Mongolia has been playing "in vain". Zhu Chen who represents Qatar is the organizer's choice for the last stage and there's another partiipant Alina L'Ami of Romania - the reasons for her participation are unknown.

Nonetheless, the main question of the event is of course who will win the series - Hou Yifan or Humpy Koneru? The trophy for the winner is presented on the official website of the event. 

The winner of the series will challenge the winner of the knock-out championship (which starts in October) for the title. Yet there's no information about the knock-out championship at all. 

Other participants will fight only for the prize money in this stage and in the event overall.
