Mariya Muzychuk: My only chance was to create complications
IMG 5177The Ukrainian Mariya Muzychuk delivered the main upset of the day, defeating Humpy Koneru on tie-break. She came to the press center a few minutes after the lucky finish of the second rapid game.

Anastasia Karlovich: Mariya, how did you manage to defeat the top rated player of the championship?

Mariya Muzychuk: It was not easy at all. In the first game I prepared a new variation with 5.Nb3, but the result was not that great. We quickly transposed to an endgame, and I did not like my position. The forthcoming game was very tactical and somehow I managed to escape to a rook ending without a pawn, which was drawn.
