Crazy Chess Opponent Video: How not to Get Disturbed!

Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2014

Hello everyone,

How do you tackle an opponent who makes gestures and indulges in disturbing behaviour during a tournament chess game? Here's the cool advice by example: Keep your head down, stay focused and beat the guy! Check out this Kosteniuk - Visser Video.
Chess Grandmaster Alexandra Kosteniuk plays a 3-minute chess blitz with International Master Yge Visser at the 2005 Chess-Darts World Championship in Amsterdam. This was the first game of the mini-match, which Alexandra won 2-0. The Chessdarts title was won by Alexandra Kosteniuk and her partner Darts Champion Andy Fordham. The game is without increment of time and the last minute of this game was very exciting for the spectators.

    this surely is one of my favourite Chess Queen videos - shows what goes into making a world champion - the roof can fall and she will go ahead and win the game
