Stavanger (Norway), June 5: It was a day of contrasting fortunes for India's chess siblings Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa and his sister R Vaishali.

While Praggnanandhaa lost to world number one Magnus Carlsen in Armageddon game in round eight of the Norway Chess tournament on Tuesday, his elder sister Vaishali won against Anna Muzychuk.

In the women's event, world champion Ju Wenjun took the lead in the standings after winning a classical game against Pia Cramling. Meanwhile, Lei Tingjie secured her first classical victory by defeating GM Koneru Humpy.
