Women's World Championship 2018, Tan Zhongyi vs Ju Wenjun

Game 7 was surprisingly unspectacular - Tan Zhongyi played with White and is trailing in the match but it seemed as if she had quickly given up hopes to be able to generate winning chances in this game. Ju Wenjun, however, was playing with Black and did not mind a draw - with three rounds to go she still leads by one full point.
