|Aug-09-15|| ||cro777: Alexandra is participating at the 65th Russian Women's Superfinal which is being held in the southeastern Siberian city of Chita.|
This is GTRK Chita (a branch of Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company) report on the tournament and the opening ceremony:

|Sep-20-15|| ||waustad: OSG Baden Baden has really pulled out the stops. Their top scorer in the FBL last year, Eva Moser is staying closer to home this year, but they've added Alexandra Kosteniuk and Antoaneta Stefanova. Anna Zatonskih, who would be the first board on most teams in the league, is the #6 player. Of course, many of the top boards won't play very often, but the depth is rather extreme with Elena Sedina and Lisa Schut at #10 and #11 respectively.|

|Oct-28-16|| ||cro777: Russian Chess Champion again 9 years later.
After winning 2 weeks ago the Russian Rapid Championship, this week Kosteniuk won the classical women's chess championship of Russia scoring 8.5/11. She secured the championship with a round to go.
Both champions (in menís and womenís competition) received the keys from Renault Kaptur cars, offered by the strategic partner of RCF, Renault Russia company.
Kosteniuk: "Previously I only won one Russian championship, in 2005. For some reason I was strongly motivated by the special prize, the Renault car, while the same could not be said about the money. When I found out that the champions will receive this car, I recalled that I don't have the Russian driver's license. Hopefully after this tournament I will fix the formalities, otherwise my husband will have to drive me around."
The last time Kosteniuk won the Russian championship was on the 27th of May 2005, 3 years before becoming women's world champion. In that championship, instead of a quick draw which would have guaranteed her first place, Alexandra went all out and won her last game against Kochetkova, which gave her clear first place with 9 points out of 11.

He's on a quest to encourage respect of the ladies and for us to--
Refrain from judging appearances.
No comments about personal matters like marital status.
Stop behaving like 14 year old boys.
Good luck with that!
On a related topic, an old joke:
Why is a man like a US Savings Bond?
They both take 25 years to mature.
|Nov-17-18|| ||keypusher: I realize no one is looking for a serious response, but I think Kosteniuk's picture is clipped from a photo with <joshka> (and Kosteniuk is, of course, clothed). It's the source of his profile pic.|
