Sochi: Top seed Indian Grandmaster Koneru Humpy's winning streak in the World Women's Chess Championship ended as she went down to Mariya Muzychuk of Ukraine in the first game of the quarterfinals here on Friday.

After winning six games in a row, Humpy committed a blunder from a seemingly harmless position to lose the game. The Indian now faces tremendous pressure in the return game in a must win situation.
