In today’s game, Hou Yifan and Koneru Humpy fought to another draw repeating the same opening from Game #4. Yifan tried 12.cxd4 attempting to improve on yesterday’s game where she got a slight advantage but was unable to make anything of it. This game seem to offer few chances to press for an advantage and after the queens left the board on move 19, the game drifted quietly into equilibrium.
