Hou Yifan retains the World Champion title

Hou Yifan, the 17-years old Chinese wonder and Women’s World Champion since 2010, will continue her reign for another year after defeating the challenger Humpu Koneru from India in the World Championship Match in Tirana, Albania.

The 8th game of the match finished in a draw as Humpy Koneru clearly lost the ambition to try and equalize the score in order to proceed into tiebreaks.

Yifan won three games and five were drawn for the final result of 5.5-2.5 (best of 10) in favour of the defending Champion.
