|Dec-08-10|| ||HeMateMe: AK has a younger sister, Oxana, who is a woman's master, but she has no games in this data base.|
|Dec-08-10|| ||I play the Fred: Is she good looking, too? Because if she is, I've got a nickname ready: "Foxy Oxie"|
You're all welcome.
|Dec-08-10|| ||HeMateMe: There could be serious money in this, Fred. You should put your idea in writing, and put in for a copywright, in D.C.|
|Dec-08-10|| ||I play the Fred: You're right, what am I doing? Ideas this awesome must be capitalized upon. So I take it back! Everyone, cease and desist! None of you may use "Foxy Oxie" without the express written consent of <I play the Fred>.|
Can't wait for the huge royalty checks to start pouring in. I suppose I'll cut <HeMateMe> in on some of this for his invaluable financial advice.
There, you all just watched someone get wealthy today. Tell all your friends!
|Jan-16-11|| ||ketchuplover: submitted for your perusal
|Jan-31-11|| ||theagenbiteofinwit: I'd love to see her play a match with Krush.|
|Jan-31-11|| ||HeMateMe: I'd like to see the rest of the photo, top of page.|
|Apr-23-11|| ||Stonehenge: Happy Birthday :)|
|Apr-24-11|| ||BobCrisp: <chessqueen Alexandra Kosteniuk

5 hours ago>
Watch out, <Magnus>. she'll be after your tail again!
|Jul-17-11|| ||HeMateMe: Congratulations to AK on winning the women's Swiss championship. Dual citizenship, via husband? |
Please demand that chessgames update your page photo.
|Aug-15-11|| ||Whitehat1963: Currently having a terrible performance.|
|Oct-22-11|| ||wordfunph: <"I remember that at 12, I was very superstitious. If won a game, for the following round I tried to follow the same route to the board and to wear the same clothes. I would write down the moves with the same pen, and of course, I carried a number of little lucky talismans.">|
- GM Alexandra Kosteniuk (from Diary of a Chess Queen)
Kosteniuk finished last with +3=1-7 in Nalchik Grand Prix :(
|Oct-23-11|| ||HeMateMe: Is "Sasha" short for Alexandria, in Russian? Or, does Sasha just mean something like "Kiddo" in English? |
ChessBase was referring to her as Sasha, recently.
|Oct-23-11|| ||Karpova: "Sasha" is a diminutive of Alexandra and Alexander. That's why Kosteniuk and Grischuk for example are often called Sasha.|
|Nov-22-11|| ||Pepperpot: Been watching the <Disney> film, <The Story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men>. Struck by the resemblance between <Joan Rice> as <Maid Marian> and <Alexandra>: |
(as you can tell from the background, that's not Sherwood Forest)
|Nov-22-11|| ||HeMateMe: That is quite the resemblance. I was further convinced when she and the "Merry Men" were playing blindfold chess atop horseback, as they rode to intercept the next shipment of the King's gold!|
|Dec-09-11|| ||knighterrant999: <pepper> you are pulling our leg, right?|
|Dec-09-11|| ||AlphaMale: I've joined twitter; I'll forward this to Alexandra.|
|Dec-10-11|| ||Eti fan: Kosteniuk big for chess again http://www.chessdom.com/rt-com-mind...|
|Jan-04-12|| ||HeMateMe: AK has a sister:
|Jan-07-12|| ||Joshka: <HeMateMe> <I'd like to see the rest of the photo> I was there, in fact that's where my avatar was taken. She was wearing a black dress with white printed dots. Karpov was sitting to her left, where they were conducting a book signing.|
|Mar-19-12|| ||AVRO38: Is it just me, or should this picture have been taken with the king instead of the queen?|
|Apr-23-12|| ||waustad: Happy b'day. She was born on Pia Cramling's 21st b'day!|
|Jun-30-12|| ||Thanh Phan: Alexandra Kosteniuk's post about the Kazan Chess Grand Prix http://t.co/Q3bXjm7Q with Google Translate, from https://twitter.com/chessqueen|
|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.
