The race to the Candidates

In the race to get the qualifying spots to the Candidates, only a miracle would leave Humpy Koneru out of the top two (Goryachkina is already qualified as the latest World Championship challenger), while Nana Dzagnidze and Kateryna Lagno became the front-runners in the struggle to get the second ticket — notice that Kosteniuk will not play the fourth leg.

@ ChrisHolmes: That would have been Lagno. The first tiebreak criterion is: no. of actual game result points scored in the three tournaments. If they had tied for 3rd-5th place in Gibraltar, Lagno would have had one more game point than Dzagnidze. In her other two tournaments, Skolkovo and Monaco, Lagno collected 13 points (6,5+6,5). Dzagnidze scored 7 points in Lausanne and 5 in Monaco, which amounts to “only” 12.

So who gets the Candidates place if Lagno & Dzagnidze tie for 3-5th place ?
