Round 11 - Report
round11  The leader of the tournament Koneru played 1.d4 d5 2.Bg5 against Tuvshintugs and this was probably a surprise for her opponent.Black has recommended herself  as a very tough opponent in this tournament, but  today she didn't find a plan to neutrualize white's aggressive attack on the king side and   had to resign on move 22.

Danielian chose the Vinaver variation of French Defense against Muzychuk. Black made some inaccuracies in the opening and their rook was forced to leave the g file and go to h8.
