THE last leg of the FIDE Women’s Grand Prix is being held in Sharjah, UAE after been changed at the very last minute from Mongolia due to illnesses in the organising committee.

The games of the event have been exciting and as in all tournaments there has been a lot of upsets happening along with people gaining a lot of rating. The one player who will gain a lot of rating is WGM Batchimeg Tuvshintugs from Mongolia.

Now is her first victory of the tournament against GM Humpy Koneru of India.
