The first round review by GM Evgeny Miroshnichenko
MiroshnichenkoThe first round of the World Championship confirmed my theory that women's chess is anything but boring. Tension was almost visible in the air, draw percentage was very low, and the plot of some matches could not possibly be predicted either by bookmakers or astrologists.

The pairing formula of the knock-out World Championships usually secures the top seeds an easy life in the starting round.

The six highest rated players of the event advanced easily and only conceded half a point (Anna Muzychuk agreed to a draw to secure the match win).
