Video Kosteniuk - Polgar 1-0

Dear Friends!

I just managed to get hold of the video of all of my games of the last World Chess Blitz Championship in Moscow. I was very successful and won several nice games against World Champion Vishy Anand (also World Rated #3), World Rated #1 Magnus Carlsen, World Rated #5 Levon Aronian, World Rated #6 Gashimov, World Rated #10 Grischuk, World Rated #11 Morozevich, and several other top players such as Arkadij Naiditsch, Vladislav Naiditsch, and Women's World Rated #1 Judith Polgar.

I am preparing a commented blitz DVD with 15 of my best games, including games I drew and games I lost, which should prove very instructive and entertaining. I will let you know when it's ready.

For now, I will present to you many of those games in their raw, uncommented state, so that you can see them without delay.

If you have any questions, please feel to
write me an email.

Very best chess wishes to you!

    Beating Anand, Polgar and Carlsen has to make for a pretty satisfying tournament.

    I haven't played tournament or blitz chess in almost 30 years, as I have had too many responsibilities. I just happened to find your site and came across this very enjoyable video. Thank you for sharing it! It reminded me of the fun I had playing chess as a teenager- I always enjoyed the once a month blitz chess tournament at my local chess club. For me, a well-played game between 2 good players is always fun to watch. Of course, these 2 are among the world's best. Thank you! From Indiana, USA
