|Mar-24-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: <madlydeeply: I played Kosteniuk in a simul a couple weeks ago...|
if you can ever play in a simul against the great ones i recommend it what a trip!>
I played GM Edmar Mednis in a simul in 1985, but it isn't the same. He was a homely old man at that time, and Kosteniuk is a pretty young lady.
I lost in 23 moves anyway. I cannot blame any distractions!
|Mar-25-10|| ||madlydeeply: I hope when i'm a homely old man i'm still a killer! HA|
|Mar-27-10|| ||wordfunph: "I switched to adult chess early on and often look back with regret on those junior events, and how little time I was able to spend playing in them." GM Alexandra Kosteniuk|

|Apr-04-10|| ||Albertan: I have analyzed Alexandra's second round game from the current Russian Women's Team Chess Championship against Grandmaster Antoneta Stefanova, and posted this analysis to the first page of my blog at http://albertan1956.blogspot.com/
using Chessviewer Deluxe. I hope you come by my blog and play through this game, which is game #36 in the Chessviewer Deluxe game directory. This game proves that it is possible for Black to win when playing the Berlin Defense against the Ruy Lopez!|
|Apr-23-10|| ||wordfunph: When funds could not be raised to send Alexandra Kosteniuk to a tournament in Yugoslavia, Kosteniuk gambled the family's last savings at a casino --- and won!|
hsppy 26th birthday Alexandra!
|Apr-23-10|| ||MaxxLange: advisory: do not gamble your family's savings to pay for a chess tournament, unless you are pretty damn sure about what you are going to play at the chessboard|
|Apr-23-10|| ||siamesedream: Happy Birthday Alexandra!|
|Jun-09-10|| ||DCP23: Alexandra participates in a simul given by a ROBOT:
The robot beats everyone else but loses to Alexandra Kosteniuk. Should have played her 1-on-1. Ah, the vanity of robots nowadays.
|Jun-09-10|| ||HeMateMe: Thats a nice site for chess video. She looks great in the red pants. The announcer says her name as 'Kos-ten-YOOK'. We americans flatten all the vowels, no emphasis on the last part of the name. |
I was once playing a game at a club and a guy from Russia came over and asked a question about 'Pet-ro-SEE-UN'. I said "Who"? And he said 'Pet-ro-SEE-HUN'......OH...."Pet-ro-shun'. Got it....
|Jun-19-10|| ||Kaspablanca: What happened to Kosteniuk website?|
|Jun-20-10|| ||AnalyzeThis: Works fine for me.
|Jun-20-10|| ||Kaspablanca: I still have problem entering her website.|
|Jun-21-10|| ||savagerules: You're missing a lot. I have no problemas at the website either. I think Kosteniuk has easily surpassed Susan Polgar at the art of self promotion. She ought to go into politics.|
|Jul-04-10|| ||Indiachess: Why Kosterniuk's name does not appear in the drop down menu like others?|
|Jul-04-10|| ||Indiachess: Does she look like Judie Foster?
|Jul-06-10|| ||Kaspablanca: Indiachess: Because she is a woman, the only exceptions are the Polgar sisters.|
|Jul-06-10|| ||HeMateMe: <Indiachess:> Judy hunts serial killers; AK just hunts down weak pawns.|
|Jul-07-10|| ||MaxxLange: "Together...they solve crimes!"|
|Jul-15-10|| ||HeMateMe: She is playing in the Swiss Championship, women's section. She was married to a Swiss man at age 19 and has a Switzerland passport. |
Presently, AK lives in Miami with her american husband. Is it possible (legalwise) for her to compete in the USA, Swiss and russiand closed women's championships?
|Jul-20-10|| ||Kaspablanca: I thought her husband is from Colombia.|
|Aug-10-10|| ||chessfootball: Amazing video with A.Kosteniuk http://grandcoach.com/en/coach/blog...|
|Aug-10-10|| ||HeMateMe: Interesting video. It looks like the clock malfunctioned during the speed game. Anyone know who she was playing, or was it just an exhibiton game?|
I'd like to meet her. If anyone here knows her, can you tell her that next time she comes to New York, she can stay at my apartment, instead of some drab hotel suite? She can go clubbing with me and my hommies. Thanks in advance!
|Oct-31-10|| ||bartonlaos: Tweet: <Happy Chess Halloween to everybody!> http://chesspics.com/albums/chesspi...|
|Oct-31-10|| ||bartonlaos: Several more Halloween photos "up a level"
|Nov-17-10|| ||HeMateMe: Theres a good video on utube, "Kosteniuk beats Carlsen", where AK is speaking from a podium, annotating the game, while the actual video of the two people at the board plays out in a smaller side window.|
She catches Magnus trying to cheat, when he grabs a rook (the wrong rook) under pressure, which immediately loses. He quickly grabs the other rook, and she waves a finger at him, "No!", and MC quickly walks away. Pretty funny, chessplayer humour. She looks great, all made up, annotating the game.
