Blitz Chess Video Krush - Kosteniuk

Hi everybody!

The recent Blitz Chess World Championship was fantastic and was so strong! The games were super interesting and exciting. Without losing too much time, I will start sharing many of my games with you. Below is the first one, against USA's Women's Chess Champion Irina Krush. There will be more coming very soon.

It's interesting to see that all 4 players of the Russia-1 women's team (Both Kosintseva sisters Tatiana and Nadezhda (2nd & 8th, Valentina Gunina 3rd, and myself 6th) at the current Khanty-Mansiysk Chess Olympiads finished within the top 8 in the World Blitz, with the second strongest country at the World Blitz being the Ukraine (Kateryna Lahno 1st, Inna Gaponenko 7th, Mariya Muzychuk 13th and Natalia Zhukova 15th). Will Russia and the Ukraine be top contenders for the Gold?

Many more videos to be posted during the next days on my YouTube channel "chessqueen".
