After five rounds at the final Women's Grand Prix in Doha, Elina Danielian of Armenia is the runaway leader with an amazing perfect score of 5/5.

Danielian's success is piling the pressure on Humpy Koneru who needs to win the event to have any chance of catching her rival Nana Dzagnidze in the overall Grand Prix standings.

This is most fortunate for Dzagnidze who is struggling in this event, losing her last three games.

Elina Danielian is on a hot streak in Doha
