WWCC08: Kosteniuk 2 – Hou 1

Again, Kosteniuk outplayed her opponent in the early middlegame, only to be rebuffed in her conversion attempts by fine play in the latter stages. One thing’s for sure, Hou has great defensive technique.

A win today would’ve meant the title for Alexandra. Now, it heads to the last pressure-packed game, where she takes the White pieces into battle for another go at it.
