Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-18-05  prinsallan: Truly beautiful attacking from both players. These sisters know how to counterplay.
Feb-23-06  McCool: Finally a game where someone wins between these two.
Feb-23-06  McCool: 59. Rb8+ ??? A squandered lead.
Jul-05-06  LivBlockade: <McCool> I'm not so sure that 59. Rb8+ is a blunder. White has some problems. Her pieces are not coordinated and her King is under strong pressure from Black's Queen and Bishops. Also, Black has threats such as ...Bxe4 or ...Bd1 (attacking f3). So if not 59. Rb8+, then what can White play to hold the position together?
Aug-30-06  YouRang: The only game (in the cg database) between these two sisters featuring a win by black.
Nov-07-07  sallom89: not a bad game .. at least it didn't end as a draw lol.
Jan-30-12  waustad: Once they finally stopped the streak of draws it was tooth and nail.
Jun-23-12  shalgo: Someone should show this game to the Kosintseva sisters.
Jun-23-12  Bobby Fiske: Some nice maneuvers by black in this game. Big sister teaches little sister a lesson. That year Susan was 23 and Judith 16.
Jun-23-12  master of defence: What´s wrong with 54.fxg4? If 54...Bxe4+ Kg1 Qc1+ 56. Bf1.
Jun-23-12  I play the Fred: <master>, in your line, doesn't 55...Bd4 win for black? 56 Qxd4 Qg3+ 57 Kf1 (57 Kh1 Qh2#) Bg2+ 58 Kg1 Bh3+ 59 Kh1 (only move) Qg2#.
Jun-23-12  waustad: Maybe the Muzychuk sisters should look at it too. They have always drawn in games we see here, though they are always different unlike the Kosintsevas. With them playing for different countries there are some interesting possibilities, but Mariya will have to move up some to play first board for Ukraine, though she has passed Ushenina and Zhukova recently. I expect that we would see Anna M. vs Lahno in a national team showdown.
