Kosteniuk checkmates Grischuk Chess Video

Hi everyone!

Our Chess Blog is pleased to present one more YouTube chess video for you: the blitz game between Grandmasters Alexandra Kosteniuk and Alexander Grischuk from the 2009 World Blitz Chess Championship. We are sure you will enjoy it, not only because of the extremely sharp "Poisoned Pawn" variation in the Sicilian Defense, but also for the stunning "Slow Motion" which has made very famous players even more famous (see link for Carlsen video below). At the end of this video, the expressions of both players are just great and surely warrant watching it again in slow motion. Do you agree? Check it for yourself and drop us a note in the comments with your impressions and comments.

We also hope some of you will support our work by buying Alexandra's DVD, she will be most grateful to you if you do!

    Loved the slow motion technique. Awesome.

    I can't hardly believe that Alexander did that too. Although I was also thinking that as black I would be very nervous in that position and seeing white having those many pieces gathered on that side of the board.
