Jul-04-10  adair10: Thank you <percyblakeney> I searched FIDE site and did not find current GP standing for women. Based on results in individual GP legs both Dzagnidze and Kosintseva have their chances of qualifying
Jul-05-10  Don Cossacks: Tatiana missed a win against Stefanova in round ten with 40...Qg4? instead of 40...Qc6 or 40...Qe6 should cement Black's victory.And in round 11 Tatiana blundered against Danielan with 25.Rc2?? and ended up her Queen trapped on Black's 26th move.But still a good runner-up finish to Nana Dzagnidze.

  BLarsen1967: I just cant wait to see if Tatiana's gonna beat Nigel Short tomorrow in Gibraltar! They both have 2 out of 2 - if Nigel manages to come up with his KG,I sure hope T.K. will be prepared for that!
Apr-14-11  Birthday Boy: Happy Birthday! Tatiana Kosintseva!
Jul-16-11  Uhohspaghettio: this girl is some babe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <BLarsen1967> Quite surprisingly, Nigel came up with 'just another gambit': Short vs T Kosintseva, 2011 and the result differs from your wishful thinking, too.

N Kosintseva vs T Kosintseva, 2011

has to be answered for.

Any comment?

  waustad: Today she beat the younger of the Muzy sisters. There was no chance of a double sister act today since Anna Muzychuk decided to play for Slovenia.

  wordfunph: happy birthday GM Tatiana!

<2011 First Hangzhou WGM Tournament: The Russian beauty Tatiana Kosintseva received a beautiful bouquet of roses from a stranger on the rest day. The bouquet consisted of roses in white, blue and red, the same colors as the Russian national flag. Unfortunately, Tatiana seemed influenced by the mysterious flowers, losing four games in a row in the second half of the event. She finally ended a disappointing 9th place with only 3.0/9.>

  ketchuplover: Sounds like her and her sister might be leaving team Russia

  Natalia Pogonina: <In 2013, she and her sister left Russia to play chess for Poland.>

Really??? :) That was an April Fool's joke by one of the Polish websites, afaik. She never mentioned it to me, and I don't see her in the transfers:

  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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!
