Humpy, Harika smell last 16 in World Championship

HATAY ( Turkey): Elo favourite Indian Grandmaster Koneru Humpy and GM norm holder Dronavalli Harika defeated International Master Jovanka Houska and Tatiania Shadrina respectively to come in sniffing distance of entering the last-16 stage of the World Women's chess championship.

Both Humpy and Hrika, the last remaining Indians in the fray after the ouster of Soumya Swaminathan, S Meenakshi and Kruttika Nadig, made merry in the first game of the second round and now need just a draw to proceed to the next stage of the $450000 prize money championship being played on a knock out format.
