The Women's World ex-Champion in classical chess Antoaneta Stefanova has just become the Rapid World Champion.

At the start of the final round of the World Championship in Batumi, Stefanova's main rival Kateryna Lahno, who was half a point behind, satisfied herself with a draw against Anna Muzychuk.

Stefanova slowly ended up in a bad position against Dronavalli Harika.

The prospects of Black's loss already clearly started to appear, but instead of the standard transfer of a rook to d6, the Indian chess player initiated the attack with 25.f5?, which livened up Black's white-squared bishop and gave counter-chances to Stefanova.

In the final position after 32...Rd8!, where the opponents agreed to a draw, Stefanova's position is already better.

The eleventh and final round is still in progress.
