|Jul-31-10|| ||Tabanus: Now 2551 and still IM, but 2nd place and GM norm in Biel Masters 17-30 July 2010:|
|Jul-31-10|| ||Don Cossacks: Congratulations for a strong second place Nadezhda!Nad scalped many 2600's male GM's in Biel.GM title is within reach:)|
|Nov-08-10|| ||Raskolnikov: Any idea, why Nadezhda doesnt participate in Women's World Chess Championship (2nd to 25th December in Hatay, Turkey)? List of Participants here: http://previews.chessdom.com/2010/w...|
I looked through technical regulations briefly http://www.fide.com/component/handb....
There are (were) 2 possibilities for Nadezhda to participate:
"# Fifty-one qualifiers from the Women's Continental Championships and Zones (51 players).
# Two nominees of the FIDE President (2 players)."
I wonder myself why wasnt she at least nominated by the FIDE President?

It does feel strange when a 2576 rated player isn't in it while more than 25 players rated in the 2000s to 2300s are.
|Nov-11-10|| ||Raskolnikov: Now http://www.chessbase.de/ gives the answer: Nadezhda hasnt participated in European Championships 2 times: once because of Exams at University, the other time because of illness. Now there is a possibility to participate due to high rating, but the decisive period of time lasts till January 2009 (!). Nadezhda hasnt so much ELO then, unfortunately. Now she is in top 5 of women rating list, has won Caissa in 2009, is winner of Olympiad, but doesnt participate, since Kirsan has given two free places to Turkish players: Yildiz, Betul Cemre and Ozturk, Kubra. It was part of the deal between Turkish Chess Organisation and FIDE. I dont blame TCO, but it is a shame that we will not see Nadezhda at the championship...|

Yes, nothing against Yildiz and Ozturk, but they are in the 2200s and not really comparable to Kosintseva.
|Nov-18-10|| ||percyblakeney: Kosintseva lines up wins in the Russian Superfinal and is one point ahead of World Champion Kosteniuk after three rounds. Her not being one of the 64 players to be included in the World Championship just feels even more strange considering the fact that she well may be the strongest woman player in the world at the moment (maybe except for the non-participating Judit Polgar). Less than 20 points up to Koneru now.|
|Jan-15-11|| ||flhoosier: Happy belated Birthday to Nadezhda!!!|
|Jan-29-11|| ||virginmind: not bad at all nadezhda, 4 points out of four in gibraltar - good luck today against short!|
|Feb-02-11|| ||Kinghunt: Congratulations on another GM norm at Gibraltar! I do believe this is her second norm, after Biel. Only one to go!|
|Feb-02-11|| ||Kinghunt: I stand corrected. It appears her performance at the last Olympiad won her her third norm and now she's just waiting for FIDE to confirm her title as grandmaster.|
|Oct-09-11|| ||plimko: FIDE Women's Grand Prix in Nalchik has started. Nadezhda is the Top Ranked Player.|
on 'Scacchi Internazionali':
|Jan-14-12|| ||flhoosier: Happy Birthday and many more wonderful years to come!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|Mar-03-12|| ||cro777: In Round 2 of the European Individual Women Chess Championship in Gaziantep, Turkey, in the game on the first board Nadezhda Kosintseva played with black against Sofiko Guramishvili. |
Position after 48.a6

With her King completely isolated Kosintseva is in a hopeless position. For instance, 48...Bh5 49.Rc6 followed by Rc8.
Kosintseva tried to use some stalemate motifs to save the game!
48...Bd3 49.Rхd3 Rf1+ 50.Kхf1 e2+ 51.Kg2! and Kosintseva resigned.
|May-03-12|| ||OhioChessFan: I think that's a pretty pathetic attempt at a stalemate.|
|Jul-28-12|| ||amaurobius: Well played Nadezhda - a very creditable shared second place at Jermuk. (Or outright second if you use S-B calculations.)|
|Sep-11-12|| ||Calar: Fantastic performance at the 2012 Olympiad in Istanbul, scoring 8/9 for Rp of 2693 - highest in Woman's Olympiad.|
Chess Olympiad (Women) (2012)/Nadezhda Kosintseva
|Sep-11-12|| ||HeMateMe: Are the sisters fraternal twins, or identical twins? In the above picture, they seem almost identical.|
|Sep-11-12|| ||perfidious: <HMM> Neither, as they were born nearly fifteen months apart.|
|Sep-11-12|| ||HeMateMe: I guess that clears that up. There certainly is a strong likeness.|
|Sep-12-12|| ||perfidious: <HMM> It's possible they were indeed twins, albeit with what one might call a sizable gap.|
|Nov-12-12|| ||waustad: She looks better on video during the WWCC knockout tournament than in most pix I've seen.|
|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...|
