2019 Women's Title Match (January 2020)

I added a new page, including crosstable & PGN, for the recently completed 2020 Ju Wenjun - Goryachkina title match to the index page on the World Chess Championship for Women. This was the fifth match since title matches were reinstated in 2011. Chinese players have won every match. For the post on the previous match, see 2017 Women's Title Match (May 2018).

I also included a short explanation about the change of regulations that went into effect between the time they were announced and the time the match was played. It's a pity that FIDE still hasn't updated the obsolete regulations, especially since the announcement of the change is buried in the Fide.com Archive (November 2019).
