The leader overcame Hou Yifan with Black to continue her excellent run. Her closest challenger is Nadezhda Kosintseva who also won, whereas her sister Tatiana lost out to Marie Sebag.

It's unusual for Hou Yifan to lose two games in a row, but the World champion has already demonstrated shaky form in recent months.

Four decisive games from five, makes day six the most blood-thirsty round so far. Dronavilli Harika has finally broken her run of draws!

The summary of round 6:
