2016 Women's World Championship

The 2016 Women's World Championship begins tomorrow in Lviv, Ukraine. It sees two times World Champion Hou Yifan against Mariya Muzychuk, who won the 2015 knockout version of the title.
Unlike to open World Championships, the Womens version is often a little more one-sided, and I suspect that this one will be as well.
Yifan outrates Muzychuk by a little over 100 points, and this is the main indicator for me. Add to this Yifan's experience in these kinds of matches and I can see Yifan wrapping it up by game 8.
The tournament website is here, and you can follow all the action (with commentary etc)  from there.
