Round 5 tiebreaks: Tan Zhongyi is in the final
The tie-break of the Women's World Chess Championship Semifinal was played in the Espinas Palace Hotel on 25th of February. 

The match Harika Dronavalli – Tan Zhongyi continued with quicker time controls following 1-1 score after the first two classical games.

After Harika’s quick victory in the first rapid game, it was hard to imagine that Zhongyi will manage to equalize the score but that’s what actually happened.

Second games of the Semifinals: Muzychuk goes to the final, Dronavalli equalizes the score.

In the return game of the semi-final clash, Alexandra Kosteniuk lost against Anna Muzychuk and was eliminated from the Women’s World Championship. Harika Dronavalli made a comeback by winning an epic battle against Tan Zhongyi.
It seems Alexandra Kosteniuk didn’t manage to recover after yesterday’s loss. In a must-win situation she decided not to exchange queens after 7...dc and ended up in a worse position after 8.e5 Ng8. Anna Muzychuk increased her advantage and won the game to become the first finalist of the World Championship.
