Nov-17-09  TheMacMan: wow she really crushed aronian in this game, more creative play from the black side, white plays too basic, no inspiration, weak
Nov-17-09  noviant: the beauty of woman world champion....
Jun-03-13  howardroark: Good job Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk. Lovely game as lovely as you.
Jun-03-13  iamsheaf: aronian seems to habitually miss tactics on central squares in this kind of position. against Anand too he had his knight on g5 and missed Qd4+ sorta tactics...even there black had a monster bishop on b7... very similar game. Amazed by the quality of the game here... not easy to demolish levon with such ease in a blitz game, that too by a player rated 250 points below him
