Goryachkina Tops Third Leg Of Women’s Grand Prix; Zhu Claims GM Title: Flash Report

This is a flash report. The full report will be added later.

GMs Aleksandra Goryachkina, Bibisara Assaubayeva, and Zhu Jiner tied for first in the recently concluded third leg of the 2022-2023 FIDE Women’s Grand Prix with scores of 6/10 in New Delhi, with Goryachkina edging out the trio on tiebreaks.

Following a shaky start that saw three of the participants withdraw before the tournament (citing organizational issues) and a round reduction after GM Elisabeth Paehtz followed suit, there ended up being plenty to celebrate at the end of the 10th round.

Zhu was crowned as China’s 41st GM after crossing a 2500 FIDE rating while Assaubayeva received her second GM norm in what was an exhibition of the future of women’s chess.

The fourth and final leg of the FIDE Women’s Grand Prix will take place in Nicosia, Cyprus, and commence on Monday, May 15, 2023.
