Following her European Team Championship success with the amazing score of 7.5/8 (tournament top performance of 2766!), Alexandra Kosteniuk gained over 16 ELO points to reach 2526 ELO, which makes her #9 woman in the world and top woman player in Russia. You can see live chess ratings for women on this site. That’s a little lower than her record of 2540 achieved in 2006, just before she became 2008 women’s world chess champion, but close to 90 ELO more than last year this time. In Rapid and Blitz Alexandra has 2588 and 2612 ELO, respectively.
See Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk’s rating progress over the last few years. Note that FIDE introduced official separate Rapid and Blitz ratings in 2011, which show that Alexandra has the best results in blitz, as you may have seen on her YouTube Channel www.youtube.com/chessqueen.
Here is the live rating for women as of today, right after the European Team Championship:
