Women’s Chess Grand Prix R2 in Ankara: Betul Yildiz Upsets Viktorija Cmilyte

This is an interesting upset game from Round 2 at the sixth and last edition of the Women’s Chess Grand Prix 2011/12. Viktoria Cmilyte – Betul Yildiz 0-1. You can read the report of the second round at Chess Blog. Here are the players’ comments: Viktorija Cmilyte: The position we got in the opening is quite known. Just I think b3 was not accurate as f5 is a good move and I don’t have Qb3 anymore. I don’t think that g4 is a good move but my position was ok after until I started to play badly. Ne2 was a bad move because after Bd6 black has many threats and it’s very difficult to defend. Betul Yildiz: I thought white could have defended more precisely in one moment. Maybe that could have tried 24.Bh7 and 25.e4 instead of 24. Bf3.
