|Jun-05-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Chessgames.com, the result of this game should be probably 1-0 as the final position is a mate.:-) |
|Jun-05-03|| ||chessgames.com: Hard to argue with that :-) |
|Jun-05-03|| ||lostemperor: Rybenko certainly is a match for Kosteniuk on and off the board! I wonder whether the audience can even keep their eyes on the board. |
|Jun-05-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: They were both under 12 playing this game. But today it would be probably more difficult for the audience to watch the game.:-) |
|Jan-17-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Agree. Until I saw that this game is from 1996, I would have loved to see photos of this game! |
|Jun-02-04|| ||zb2cr: You know, I think the lovely and talented Ms. Kosteniuk missed a win, probably due to time trouble. I can't see a good winning line for White after 33...Bg6, instead of 33...d4 as actually played. |
|Jun-04-04|| ||zb2cr: To follow up on my own comment, I think that Black had a won game if she had played 33...Bg6. One variation I've worked out is:|
34 d6, c6; 35 b7, e8; 36 xe8+, xe8; 37 d1, e6; 38 g3, h5; 39 a1, e2; 40 e3, d4; 41 f4, d3; 42 e3, xe3; 43 fxe3, xe3; 44 d6, d2 and the win is obvious.
Other possible lines for White at move 34 are 34 g4 and 34 Nh6+. I did not work those out, but they seem to me to be weaker than 34 Nd6.

Also, today Kosteniuk would probably beat the tar out of Rybenko - GM vs. WIM. |
|Sep-13-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Time for a rematch between these two. I propose a 24-game match ... in bikinis, of course!|
Hey, if the Olympics can have beach volleyball players in bikinis, why can't FIDE sponsor a beach chess tournament in bikinis. Imagine what it could do for ticket sales!
|Sep-13-08|| ||Voltaic: ok, it could be considered sexist for some guys/gals that's for suer, but anyway i'm sure it would attract a lot of spectators, after all a lot of WGM are slim, arent they? ;)|
|Sep-30-08|| ||Whitehat1963: As I was saying, time for a rematch between these two. The full 24-game match. Yes, in bikinis! Imagine the, ahem, exposure:|
