Feb-06-13  ketchuplover: psychological incompatibility
Feb-07-13  dx9293: More drama for the Russian teams...
Feb-07-13  dumbgai: Gotta wonder what Sergey did...
Aug-06-13  amaurobius: No recorded games yet in 2013. Is Nadya taking an extended break since she married?
Aug-06-13  BlackFront: That or she's now playing under her husband's name.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Has she played in public since the knock out where she had to play her sister? In the next round she lost pretty quickly if I recall.
Sep-13-13  supy: Kosintseva is now studying in USA
Sep-13-13  dx9293: <supy> Wow...I am very surprised at this. I don't know what to say.

I'm shocked because I can't remember one of the top Russian players ever joining one of the big American college teams, and also because I was under the impression that Kosintseva was a professional.

Also, she's 28. It doesn't say she is a grad student (like Margvelashvili), and accounting is quite a serious major. It makes me wonder if she is thinking of getting a corporate job or even changing her federation to USA to win some USA Women's Championships?! If she is living in America, and IF she is serious about getting an office job, playing for Rex Sinquefield's cash would make sense as well.

I don't know anything, I'm just speculating, but potentially not a good day for Russian chess...nor for Irina Krush and Anna Zatonskih.

  paulalbert: Her move to Dallas may have more to do with the fact that her husband GM Leonid Kritz is studying at the University of Texas , Dallas and also playing on that school's chess team.
Sep-13-13  mwic: I was stunned to see Nadezhda in UTD gear at the Southwest Open Labor Day weekend (and got her autograph on my copy of Play Like a Girl). How awesome that the only active female GM in the country is now my neighbor!
Sep-13-13  dx9293: <paulalbert> Interesting! I did not know Nadezhda was married to Kritz.

Still, I wonder what her next moves will be...

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: I saw that she had played in an open tournament in Texas but didn't know that she'd moved there. Are any of the games from the Southwest Open available anywhere on the net?
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Sure enough, she's now a student at UTD:
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Hmm, this may also have something to do with wanting to take a different tournament niche from her sister, so they don't get in each other's way so often. We know how they hate to play against each other.

Incidentally, her "bio" here is something of an embarrassment. Tatiana is not that much better a player than her sister, that Nadezhda should be described only as "sister of..." :s

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: She didn't fare that well at the UT Dallas GM Tournament, but then she was the lowest rated player (I think they posted USCF ratings) and didn't come in dead last, so that is something. The -3 result did cost her a little over 10 pts elo and dropped her a few places in the live ratings. At the moment she has more weighty concerns, since in her picture for the tournament she's clearly pregnant. School, chess and motherhood sounds like a tough combination to manage. Let's all wish her the best, with good health to all.

GM Nadezhda Kosinceva with her husband GM Leonid Kritz and the "future GM" Sophia preparing for the Death Match.

Death Match 26: GM Irina Krush vs. GM Nadezhda Kosintseva is now playing.

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: How did they do in the "death match?"
Jul-27-14  SimonWebbsTiger: @<wausted>

I didn't see the bullet chess to an end. Kosintseva was leading when I left.

They had otherwise drawn the 5 minutes and 3 minutes matches (4.5 and 3.5).

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Krush won the final bullet (1+1) portion 6.5-5.5 to defeat Kosintseva 14-13.

Interestingly, Krush won the final five games, overcoming the four-game deficit!

"How it happened I have no idea," Krush said.

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Both the 5+1 and 3+1 blitz sections ended tied: 3.5-3.5 and 4-4.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: She came in 0.5 behind her husband, who was sole winner of the 80th Annual Southwest Open:
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Happy birthday! A 30th birthday deserves POTD honors.
