Aug-26-14  waustad: Her picture at the opening of the GP event in Sharjah is the first time I've seen her smile since all of the upheaval when the sisters quit the Russian team. http://en.chessbase.com/Portals/4/f...
Jan-30-15  schnarre: ...She has a nice smile indeed!
Sep-14-15  The Kings Domain: My Chess crush. :-)
Dec-26-15  zanzibar: Hard to believe we don't have a photo for her on <CG>...

https://www.google.com/search?q=Tat...

All of these photos are PD, and she's in at least 4 of 'em.

Dec-26-15  zanzibar: Read <A more recent photo> in the above.
Dec-26-15  zanzibar: The sisters playing a decisive game in the Russian Women's Ch (Blitz) in 2010:

Dec-26-15  waustad: This is one of the better pictures of T Kosi. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7408/...
Dec-27-15  zanzibar: <waustad> as far as I can tell, a bad one of her doesn't exist.
Dec-27-15  zanzibar: OK, maybe this one:

  HeMateMe: what do the K sisters do for a living, these days?
Apr-12-16  waustad: Nadezhda was a married grad student in Dallas with a young child, last I heard. She still plays fairly often in the USA. Tatiana's last rated games were almost a year ago. I noticed that after one year of inactivity that a player is no longer considered active by FIDE, since Eva Moser dropped off the list this month after not having any rated games posted since last April. Tatiana has none since May, so she'll probably be off the top female lists next posting.
Jul-08-16  beerpatzer: I miss her so much!!! Please come back to chess! Maybe not as a top player but at least a commentator or a trainer!
Jan-24-17  amateur05: What happened with the Kosintseva sisters? Why did they quit chess?
Apr-11-17  waustad: I've seen some stuff by Nadezhda on Chessbase, but nothing from Tatiana.
Apr-11-17  The Kings Domain: 31 years for one of the most interesting and attractive ladies who mastered the 64 squares. :-)

Yes. And the 32 pieces that move about on those 64 squares. Don't forget them.

Apr-11-18  schnarre: ...Happy 32nd!
Apr-11-18  Ironmanth: Happy birthday, Grandmaster! All the best for a successful chess career.
Aug-11-18  The Kings Domain: That's a nice image of her gracing the page, good to see it updated attractively. :-)
