Zsuzsa Polgar scored an exciting win to equalise the scores after four games of the Women's World Championship match. Xie Jun, the defending champion, charged down the board to open lines against the black king, but 18...Na4! let Black fight for the initiative. The game ended suddenly with White's queen falling into a well-laid trap. Here are the full moves, with Xie Jun playing White, Polgar Black:
