Women's Candidates 2022-23 Pool A QF: Humpy and Lei stay ahead
It was a peaceful day at FIDE Women's Candidates 2022-23 Pool A Quarterfinals. Both games ended in draws. Anna Muzychuk went for an all-out attack against Koneru Humpy. It could have backfired her if Humpy spotted the correct continuation. She didn't and the game ended in a draw. The other Quarterfinal game between Mariya Muzychuk and Lei Tingjei was a calm draw. Humpy and Lei, both are now just a win away from winning the Quarterfinals and advancing to the Semifinals. Today is a rest day. Game 3 starts tomorrow, Friday 28th October 2022 at 3 p.m. local time, 6:30 p.m. IST. Photo: FIDE/Michal Walusza
