The 16-year old Hou Yifan took a step closer to becoming the Women's World Chess Champion today by taking the lead in the final match with Ruan Lufei.

After an exciting draw in the first game, Yifan won the second game with the black pieces.  That leaves just two games left and no room for error from her opponent.
