I think it is a mistake bu Humpy to take the pawn. She would have been better off taking the Bishop on e3. 22.Ra3 Bd7 White can play 23.Qa1 then Rb1 with a good size advantage23.Qa1 Nb7 Rb1 is needed now to maintain the strong edge. Black has a serious problem with piece placement24. Rb1 Qc7 25. Rxa6 Rxa6 26. Qxa6 Nd8 Now Nc4 gives White a very strong position. Humpy will have a hard time defending this.27. Nc4 f5 28.Qb6 Qxb6 29. Nxb6 f4 30. Nxd7 fxe3 31. Nxe3 +- As I have pointed out above, the big mistake for Humpy is taking the pawn on a5. I remember she grabbed a pawn against Stefanova in a recent tournament and lost as well. Hou now has a pawn up and big advantage.31...Bh6?! Now g4 and Black has a problem finding squares for the Knight. If Ng7 then Nf632.g4 Re7 33. Ba4 Nf4 34. Rb8 Hou has taken advantage of Humpy's mistake perfectly! This game is almost over.34...Kg7 35.Rxd8 Rf7 White is now up by a whole piece!36.Nd1?! This is the first inaccuracy by Hou. 36.Nc4 would have been much stronger. White is still better but Black has some counter chances now.36...Nxh3+ 37.Kg2 Nf4+ 38.Kf1 Bg5 +- 39.Rb8 Nd3 White can start to peel of the d6 pawn with Rb6. What makes matters worse is Humpy is in serious time pressure.40.Rb6 Rf4 +- 41.Bb5 Nxf2 42. Nxf2 Bh4 43. Rxd6 Rxf2+ 44. Kg1 Rf4 45. Nxe5 +- Rxe4 46. Rd7+ Kg8 47. Nf3 Rxg4+ 48. Kf1 Bf6 49. Rc7 Humpy is trying the best she could to create counter play. However, being a piece up and having a strong pawn on d5, it does look good for Hou.49...g5 50.Rxc5 Rf4 51.Kg2 +- g4 White can simply retreat the Knight to d1 and Black has not much to look forward to.52.Nd4 h5 53.Rc8+ Kf7 54. d6 h4 55. Be8+ 1-0 Well played game by the young Hou to take advantage of Humpy's lone error.
