How to defend against female Grandmasters as black?


GM Zhu Chen

The first example is me against Chinese-Qatar Grandmaster Zhu Chen (2491), former Women's World Champion. The game was on the 5th round in Asian Continental which held in Subic, Olongapo City, Philippines in May 2009. Fortunately I had a good preparation here, I was trained under GM Lasha Jangjava from Georgia. I finished 11th, tied from 8th-15 with 6,5 points from 11 rounds.

GM Dzagnidze Nana

The second example happened in China for 2009 Zhejiang-Lishui Open against Grandmaster Nana Dzagnidze (2535), rank#1 in Georgia. All moves came by my own. I was with no one, but luckily can manage a win. I scored 5,5 out of 9 with 5 draws ,3 wins, and 1 lost.
