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

Hi everyone,

Some more updates from the Russian Team Chess Championships: After eight rounds in the open section, Tomsk-400 and SHSM-64 are tied with 15 points each for the lead after eight rounds. SHSM-64 was trailing by just half a point and it did well to catch up in the eighth round. Even though GM Anish Giri lost to IM Dmitrij Sitnikov, SHSM-64 won all their other games. 

In the women's section, after four rounds we have Giprorechtrans leading with 11.5 points with SHSM-RSCU just half a point behind. You can access the crosstables for the men's section here and the women's section here. There is a day off in the women's section on Wednesday. You can access the official website of the Russian Chess Federation here.

We bet you're following Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk playing Board 1 for the SHSM-RSCU (Moscow) team. So check out all her games played so far in the tournament at this link. Needless to add, the Chess Queen is top scorer with a 100% win performance.
