ETC - Round 7 & Mamedjarova - Kosteniuk

Hello dear chess amateurs of women's chess!

Today was the 7th round at the European Team Championship in Novi Sad. On the first table, my team Russia beat Azerbaijan 4-0, on the second, Georgia beat Israel 3-1, and on the third, Armenia beat Romania 3.5-0.5.

Preliminary rankings show Russia and Georgia leading with 12 team points, followed by Armenia and the Czech Republic, with 10.

There are still 2 rounds to be played, so anything can still happen. Tomorrow Russia plays the Czech Republic and Georgia plays Bulgaria.

All results can be found on the site

Here is the game I played today against board 1 of Azerbaijan, Zeinab Mamedjarova:

    for me, this game is so pretty, equal to kosteniuk wonder you're a queen of chess in this world..your plan & strategy looks simple, well executed & slowly but surely, your opponent would like to resign as soon as possible.. :)

    ..16..b5 is a move which I think, not many people will discovered on the board (of course not for a Master category)..25..Nc5 is great and 29..b2 is deadly, in which, concluded a pawn storm initiated form move 16.

    coach me more, please.. :)

    beautiful game there. crushing the bad bishops, knight penetrating outposts, rook on the side files for offense and defense. especially the infantry assault on the opposite wing. wow!
