Hou Yifan Recaptures Women's Title

I added the 2013 Hou Yifan - Ushenina Title Match to the index page covering the World Chess Championship for Women. This was the last event in the 2011-2013 cycle for women. The most important rules for the cycle were already summarized in my post on the 2011-2012 Women's Grand Prix, Jermuk.

There is much that can be said about the structure of the Women's World Championship, but I'll leave that for another time. In the meantime, congratulations to the remarkable Hou Yifan for regaining her women's title!

There are two more World Championship events currently underway. For details, see September 2013 World Championships on my main blog.
