Ataturk Women Masters Chess, Round 2, four win!!

Ataturk Women Masters Chess

Round 2

Chen Zhu lost 2 games in a row (?)
This time too, she lost to a lower rated opponent Cramling Pia!!
The result could be foreseen in halfway of the game!
Looked as if, no real plan, just wandering (?)
Having lost already to Irina Krush, looks like lost confidence too.

What is Fork, in chess?
Here is a classic example!
Yifan Hou has won on a much low rated player Yildiz Betul Cemre, with a hidden fork!
(As the Black queen takes the new White Queen, the White Knight checks the black queen, forking black Queen! Game ends!!)

Here is the game!!

Now, here is the confident one.
Harika won! on higher rated opponent!!
Losing last round terribly dint hinder Harika, end game was played and won with extreme ease!
With this win, she is back in game! Lets wish!

Here are the results!
