Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 9 OF 9 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Apr-10-14  waustad: She's back to even after two rounds in the Khanty-Mansiysk Grand Prix. The good news for her is that she's already played 2 blacks and already played Hou Yifan and Alexandra Kosteniuk. The live coverage has been quite good, though very early in my time zone.
Apr-10-14  SimonWebbsTiger: @<wausted>

shame there isn't a discussion page on for such a prestigious women's event.

I heartily agree on the coverage.

Some great fighting chess, too. I am pretty pleased my favourite Uzbek WGM ( the <only> one!) Nafista Muminova won today.

Apr-10-14  schweigzwang: Agree, there deserves to be a page here about the event.
Apr-11-14  waustad: She has 2 more years as a 20 something. I hope that she enjoys her time in Khanty-Mansiysk and has a great and productive life ahead of her, wherever she ends up. Happy Birthday!
Apr-29-14  maelith: How cute, Tatiana Kosintseva has the same chess opening repertoire with her sister Nadezhda.
Premium Chessgames Member
Aug-26-14  waustad: Her picture at the opening of the GP event in Sharjah is the first time I've seen her smile since all of the upheaval when the sisters quit the Russian team.
Jan-30-15  schnarre: ...She has a nice smile indeed!
Sep-14-15  The Kings Domain: My Chess crush. :-)

  zanzibar: Hard to believe we don't have a photo for her on <CG>...

All of these photos are PD, and she's in at least 4 of 'em.

Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: Read <A more recent photo> in the above.
Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: The sisters playing a decisive game in the Russian Women's Ch (Blitz) in 2010:

Dec-26-15  waustad: This is one of the better pictures of T Kosi.
Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: <waustad> as far as I can tell, a bad one of her doesn't exist.
Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: OK, maybe this one:

Apr-11-16  waustad: Happy 30th b'day!
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Tatiana Kosintseva.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: what do the K sisters do for a living, these days?
Apr-12-16  waustad: Nadezhda was a married grad student in Dallas with a young child, last I heard. She still plays fairly often in the USA. Tatiana's last rated games were almost a year ago. I noticed that after one year of inactivity that a player is no longer considered active by FIDE, since Eva Moser dropped off the list this month after not having any rated games posted since last April. Tatiana has none since May, so she'll probably be off the top female lists next posting.
Jul-08-16  beerpatzer: I miss her so much!!! Please come back to chess! Maybe not as a top player but at least a commentator or a trainer!
Jan-24-17  amateur05: What happened with the Kosintseva sisters? Why did they quit chess?
Apr-11-17  waustad: I've seen some stuff by Nadezhda on Chessbase, but nothing from Tatiana.
Apr-11-17  The Kings Domain: 31 years for one of the most interesting and attractive ladies who mastered the 64 squares. :-)
Apr-11-17  blunderclap: A valiant warrior indeed>

Yes. And the 32 pieces that move about on those 64 squares. Don't forget them.
