In the final round of the stage four of the Women's Grand Prix Series in Kazan, two of the leaders achieved success. Anna Muzychuk outplayed Nadezhda Kosintseva with Black, while Humpy Koneru, also with Black, was rewarded with a blunder by Alisa Galliamova in a most complicated game.

GALLIAMOVA - KONERU

Black has a good compensation for a piece.
28.h3? Ne5 29.Kf2 h4! 30.Rxh4 Nxc4 31.Bxc4 Qe3+ 32.Kf1 Qxg3,

and White lost.

In another interesting encounter of the day, Kateryna Lahno got confused while leading the attack and lost to Tatiana Kosintseva. Alexandra Kosteniuk won against Betul Yildiz, leaving the Turkish player at the bottom of the table. At the start of the round, as we've already reported, the game between Antoaneta Stefanova and Viktorija Cmilyte ended with a repetition.

According to the regulations of the series, the Grand Prix points and the prize money would be equally shared between Koneru and Muzychuk. The Indian player should officially be named as the winner of the stage, according to the second tie-break criterion: the Sonneborn-Berger score. (The first tie-break criterion used in case of sharing is the result of the game between Humpy and Anna, which was a draw).

The game between Hou Yifan and Elina Danielian, who was leading three rounds before the end, but now finishing catastrophically, is taking longer than other games. The World Champion has a big advantage; the game is still being played. In case of a win, the Chinese player would share the third place with Viktorija Cmilyte in this stage of the Grand Prix.
