As we've already reported, yesterday evening there was an opening ceremony together with the draw of the fourth stage of the Women's Grand Prix in Kazan. The participants selected plates with pictures of Kazan as they walked on the stage; these plates specified their number in the draw.

This stage of the Grand Prix is particularly interesting because the top three rating-favourites are participating: Hou Yifan, Anna Muzychuk and Humpy Koneru. Based on the results of the previous stages, a certain fight for the lead has already developed between Hou Yifan and Muzychuk. However, the Chinese won both stages where she participated and it's quite probable that the real fight between her rivals will be for the second place in the series, which guarantees the match against the World Champion.
