IM Anna Zatonskih won the first game of her two-game mini-match against GM Marie Sebag of France.



Tomorrow, Sebag has to win to split the match. Otherwise, Anna will advance to the sweet sixteen and play the winner of GM Humpy Koneru vs. IM Jovanka Houska. Koneru, the highest rated player in the event at 2600 FIDE, won her first round against Houska, so she would be the most likely opponent.
