Russian team chess championships: Hard-fought games all around

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

Hi everyone,

The tough Russian Team Chess Championships are a showcase for some of the world's best chess played. You love to watch every single game! You can find the complete open section results here and the complete women's section results here.

In the open section we have SHSM-64 and Tomsk-400 leading jointly with 17 points each and the rest of the teams a good three points away.

In the women's section we have SHSM-RSCU (Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk's team) in joint lead with Giprorechtrans and ABC with 8 points each. Rook team is just one point behind. The SHSM-RSCU team is just a 0.5 points ahead on tiebreak 2. Five rounds have been played in the women's section while nine rounds have been played in the open section.

Some post-match analysis.

You can access the official website here and a link to all the live games of the current round here.

Now, sample some exciting chess. Of course, we bet you're tracking Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk playing Board 1 for her Moscow team. What if we tell you that this Thursday, the Chess Queen had a real lazy day at the Board... Because her King did all the hard work! You can also access her games at also. Enjoy the games.
