Alexandra Kosteniuk in the only woman playing in the Russian Championship in TomskThe super strong Russian Men’s Championship is over, Alexandra beat Vadim Karpov today in the last round. The overall Russian Championship winner ended up to be Ernesto Inarkiev, whom you see on the photo to the left gave a hard time to Alexandra in the second round, congratulations to him! Alexandra had a difficult tournament in Tomsk, and ended up with only 3 points, but we are sure you know that the only way to make progress is to meet players stronger than you, and to gather lessons from defeats. So we are sure this tournament is on Alexandra’s path to become a much stronger chess player. For fun, have a look at a caricature that was made of Alexandra in Tomsk.
