Tatiana Kosintseva wins Nalchik Chess Grand Prix 2010



Hello everybody!

On May 8 the 3rd tournament of the women's FIDE Grand-Prix came to its end in Nalchik.

The winner of this tournament - Tatiana Kosintseva scored 9 out of 11 in this strong field and with this wonderful result took clear first place followed by Hou Yifan with 7,5 points and Nana Dzagnidze and Pia Cramling with 7 points. That was the first tournament for Tatiana in this Grand-Prix Series and I wish her all the best in the next tournaments which are scheduled to be in July, August and November 2010.

After first three tournaments of this Grand-Prix series (in Istanbul in March 2009, in Nanjing in September 2009 and Nalchik in April 2010) Hou Yifan is leading with 250 overall Grand-Prix points, here is the full table of contenders. I remind you that the winner of this Grand-Prix (the players who will get more points for her best three results out of 4 tournaments of the Grand-Prix) will get a chance to play a match with the women's world chess champion in 2011.

    The Kosintseva sisters seem rather quiet to me as far as interviews / internet presence. What are they like? And how are they in person?

    I know Tatiana has very beautiful blue eyes, but no sure if those awesome eyes are real or just contact lenses.

    Поздравляю Татьяну Косинцеву с заслуженной досрочной и уверенной Победой в таком сильном турнире! А всех завистников и не доброжелателей надо отправлять чем можно дальше! С уважением Юрий Волков.
