|Aug-30-12|| ||HeMateMe: No Kosteniuk games yet, from the 2012 Olympiad. Tardy reporting, or has she somehow missed the first two rounds? Tsk, Turkey should have asked the London olympic organizers how to put on a multi country event.|
I do wish an updated photo were uploaded here.
|Aug-30-12|| ||JeffCaruso: Kosteniuk is 3-0 after Rd. 3. See http://www.chessolympiadistanbul.com/|

|Jul-20-13|| ||cro777: Alexandra Kosteniuk won the 2013 Swiss National Chess Championship (in men's competition)!!|
The Championship (9 round Swiss with a classical time control) took place from 11th-19th July in Grächen, a municipality in the district of Visp in the canton of Valais in Switzerland.
87 players from seven different countries signed up to participate, including 8 Grandmasters and 8 International Masters. French GM Christian Bauer was the first seed, followed by Serbian Mihajlo Stojanovic and French GM Andrei Sokolov. In the tie-break match Kosteniuk defeated Buss 2:0.
In the 113 years long history of the Swiss championships a woman won the championship. (Kosteniuk has the Russian and the Swiss citizenship).

Do they have dual nationality, as well, or were they competing hors concours?
|Jul-20-13|| ||cro777: It seems they played hors concours.
|Jul-21-13|| ||HeMateMe: A seven minute documentary about AK:
|Jul-21-13|| ||BlackFront: Congrats to Alexandra on coming 7th...equal 2nd...her magnificent and historical victory!|
|Jul-21-13|| ||BlackFront: <@chessqueen 23h
RT @ChessClubLive congrats @chessqueen Swiss national champion - history made become first female national all-comers champion.>
She's certainly a GM of self-promotion. She could challenge Susan Polgar for her world title.
|Jul-21-13|| ||perfidious: <BlackFront: (Kosteniuk is) certainly a GM of self-promotion. She could challenge Susan Polgar for her world title.>|
So sez a jealous misogynist.
|Jul-22-13|| ||cro777: Thanks to her dual Swiss-Russian citizenship, Alexandra Kosteniuk has been invited to fight for the National Swiss Championship for the 5th time this year. The last 4 years she was close to the top but not quite first. This year she won both the women’s and men’s national chess titles.|
|Jul-22-13|| ||cro777: European Women's Championship 2013 has been opened in Belgrade, Serbia.|
In the first round, on Tuesday, 23rd July, Kosteniuk meets WIM Pavlidu Ekaterini from Greece.
|Sep-28-13|| ||PhilFeeley: Missing Kosteniuk - Skripchenko, 2004. A rapid game with the Philidor opening. Apparently Skripchenko botched it early, but I don't have the moves.|
|Oct-14-13|| ||Cemoblanca: Kosteniuk's typical foot position:
BTW: Congrats for the 2nd place at the 63rd Russian Championship.
