Aug-29-12  schnarre: ...Nice pic indeed stanleys!
Feb-06-13  ketchuplover: Sounds like her and her sister might be leaving team Russia
Premium Chessgames Member
  Natalia Pogonina: <In 2013, she and her sister left Russia to play chess for Poland.>

Really??? :) That was an April Fool's joke by one of the Polish websites, afaik. She never mentioned it to me, and I don't see her in the transfers:

Apr-11-13  polarmis: The elaborate April Fools story is here: (in Polish)

  waustad: There are some excellent pictures here:
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: She's back to even after two rounds in the Khanty-Mansiysk Grand Prix. The good news for her is that she's already played 2 blacks and already played Hou Yifan and Alexandra Kosteniuk. The live coverage has been quite good, though very early in my time zone.
Apr-10-14  SimonWebbsTiger: @<wausted>

shame there isn't a discussion page on for such a prestigious women's event.

I heartily agree on the coverage.

Some great fighting chess, too. I am pretty pleased my favourite Uzbek WGM ( the <only> one!) Nafista Muminova won today.

Apr-10-14  schweigzwang: Agree, there deserves to be a page here about the event.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: She has 2 more years as a 20 something. I hope that she enjoys her time in Khanty-Mansiysk and has a great and productive life ahead of her, wherever she ends up. Happy Birthday!
Apr-29-14  maelith: How cute, Tatiana Kosintseva has the same chess opening repertoire with her sister Nadezhda.

  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.
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>...

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:

  waustad: This is one of the better pictures of T Kosi.
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:

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Happy 30th b'day!
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Tatiana Kosintseva.
Apr-11-16  HeMateMe: what do the K sisters do for a living, these days?
Premium Chessgames Member
  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!
