Though, top-rated Koneru Humpy of India was knocked out of the Women’s World Chess Championship 2012 in Khanty Mansiysk in the second round, India’s Harika Dronavalli has done well to progress to the fourth round. She knocked out Lela Javakhishvili with accurate play in the third round. Lela resigned in the position on the left-three pawns down and a King without any protective cover had no hope!
