Are Killer Chess Robots Kind to Pretty Russian Girls?

Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hello everyone,

Yes, pretty girls play very strong chess, but once in a while you cannot help suspect that a killer chess 'gentleman' would allow a pretty girl to 'escape' with a draw? Maybe! Maybe, not!

Kuka Monster spent a recent winter evening in a night club in Moscow - playing chess with Pavel Eljanov and Alina Kashlinskaya. The guests watching closely included Russian national chess team coach Yuri Dokhoyan. 

The special chess event was titled 'Mind Games' and included three hours of chess in the blitz format between Alina, Eljanov and Kashlinskaya. The highlight of the event was world chess robot champion Kuka Monster taking on Eljanov and Kashlinskaya in separate games. 

Eljamov sacrificed a pawn and lost the chess endgame to Kuka Monster. Kashlinskaya managed to bravely hold Kuka Monster to a draw in a perpetual check after a series of sacrifices. Yes, Alina Kashlinskaya is a strong chess player from Russia, but we couldn't help speculating: Did Kuka Monster flirt with her? Replay the game and decide for yourself. (It was a 5:0 Blitz)
