Game Of the Week: Hou Yifan vs. Olga Girya

Opening: B49: Sicilian: Taimanov

Player(s): Hou Yifan, Girya

Three-time U.S. Champion GM Joel Benjamin brings you a new show every Friday at 15:00 Server Time. Joel is regarded by many as one of the best commentators and analysts' we have in the game today -- so if you want to get ahead of the game, get ready to tune-in!

As the dominant male in the chess world, Magnus Carlsen, racked up another tournament victory in the Gashimov Memorial, World Champion Hou Yifan confirmed that she is the dominant female with a convincing victory in the Women's Grand Prix in Khanty Mansiysk.

Her score of 8.5 out of 11 put her a point and a half clear of the field. The result of the second place finisher, however, was a surprise. Despite being one of the tournament's lowest rated competitors, the 22-year old Russian WGM Olga Girya notched 7 points and an apparent grandmaster norm. With a highly successful youth career behind her, Girya looks to have a promising future. But in this week's feature game, Hou Yifan sends the message that she herself owns the present.
