The perpetual check could decide everythinng in Stefanova - Sebag clash of the quarter-final as it did in the neighbouring quarter-final encounter of the Women's World Championship. 

STEFANOVA - SEBAGГ

Stefanova needed only a win. Her rival made a witty sacrifice of a pawn in Slav defence in order to ruin White's kingside pawn structure. Now, Sebag had to sacrifice her bishop too, so she could enter the semifinal: 33...Rd7! (important is to keep d-line under control) 34.Qc8+ Kh7 35.fxe3 and Black can choose any of the possible ways of perpetual check - for instance, that could be 35...Qh1+.

Sebag decided to keep the bishop: 33...Bd2? 34.Kd1 Rc8 35.Qb7 Bf4, but White got an advantage after 36.Kc2! Later Bulgarian was accurate in converting her advantage.
