Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-18-08  percyblakeney: World Champion of 1978 beats World Champion of 2008. Already around move 20 it looks very good for black and Chiburdanidze has now won both the decisive games she has played against Kosteniuk (and that with black), the previous game being:

Kosteniuk vs Chiburdanidze, 2005

Nov-18-08  withingrace: a very amusing games that clearly demonstrates the power of bishops.
Nov-18-08  CapAnson: Good.. I always root against Kosteniuk.
Nov-18-08  Wolfgang01: After the sac of the exchange Kosteniuk was obviously surprised and never found a plan against the both bishops of Chiburdanidze. The quality of the game lacks of Kosteniuk's scary play.
Nov-19-08  Maroczy: Alexandra was psyched out; she needs to dissipate this bete noire in her psyche, mentally crush her and the problem is gone:).
Mar-22-10  DiscoJew: A very sexy game from Maia indeed :)
