    John Saunders reports: As if thedefeat of former world champion Vladimir Kramnik by veteran US GM Jim Tarjan wasn't quite enough, round three of the Chess.com Isle of Man Masters featured twin sensations on boards involving all-women clashes. The two top Chinese women players, Hou Yifan and Ju Wenjun, were defeated by Nino Batsiashvili of Georgia and Jovanka Houska of England (two countries which happen to share the same patron saint beating two Chinese dragons - hence the title of the piece).
