Kosteniuk Chess Games from Olginka

Hello everyone!
I’m pleased to report that my team won the Russian Team Championship in Olginka, Russia. My team was comprised of (from left to right in the photo) Alina Kashlinskaya (Board 5, 4/5), Valentina Gunina (Board 2, 4/6), Alexandra Kosteniuk (Board 1, 6/7), Olga Girya (Board 4, 2/4), and Marina Romanko (Board 3, 2/6). In second position was the team led by Zhukova and Munguntuul, and in 3rd the team led by Stefanova and Lahno. The championship was very strong this year.

LIVE Game Munguntuul – Kosteniuk

Watch my Game LIVE against Mungultuul, decisive for the Tournament win!

Update February 6, 2011: The game just ended in a hard-fought draw, which benefits Alexandra since she has a better Berger coefficient (she beat stronger players such as Zhao Xue).

So the big winner of the 2011 Moscow Open Women’s Invitational Chess Tournament is Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk!
