Dec-17-13  cro777: "Mind Games" in a night club.

One of the night clubs in Moscow hosted an unusual event - Mind Games. The program of the event also contained the encounter against the chess robot constructed by Alexandra Kosteniuk's father, Konstantin Kosteniuk (the first chess robot to beat grandmasters in blitz chess).

GM Pavel Eljanov lost in the endgame, while Kashlinskaya drew her game catching the robot on a perpetual check after series of sacrifices.
