Must-watch chess videos: Take a trip to Athens with the Chess Queen

Chess blog for latest news and trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

We got these 2 videos from our Greek friend Constantine Koutsoukos, who "fished" them from Facebook.

Sunshine, chess, children, music and in the romantic city of Athens with the Chess Queen. Who says dream don't come true! Two super duper videos from 2009 and we thought it was yesterday. Enjoy!

Of course, don't forget to cheer for Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk playing right now in the Moscow Open 2011 Young Women Grandmasters' section. Just head over to, drop a personal message and applaud her power-packed games. That is - after the videos.

This is a montage of photographs set to music taken during the Athens Chess Festival 2009 Open Junior Kosteniuk Simul Qualifier that took place in Petroupoli, Athens, Greece on Sunday the 11th of October 2009. The Athens Chess Festival was organised by Petroupoli Chess Club DIAS.

If you happen to go to Athens, and you speak a little Greek, make sure to pass by Constantine's chess club!
