Kosteniuk’s Slow Motion Checkmate Knockout chess video vs Wang Hao goes viral on YouTube

Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk check mates Wang HaoLess than 24 hours have passed since we posted on YouTube the 1 minute 47 seconds video of the checkmate, and over 1000 views have been registered on YouTube, and the number is rising fast [now 3 days = 3,000+ views]. The video shows the confident looking Chinese #1 Super Grandmaster Wang Hao blunder against an opponent ranked close to 300 ELO points below him, and the brutal shock he gets with the checkmating of his king. The moves are in extreme slow-motion, and you can imagine the thought process that went in the Chinese GM’s mind when he was holding on to his knight on f5. Here is the direct link to the video in YouTube. Please click “Thumbs Up” or “Like” if you appreciate the video and would like more chess videos by Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk.

Watch Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk Play against the World’s Top Grandmasters

Hi everybody,

The new chess ratings of November 2011 are out. Due to not so great tournaments this year I’m at 2439, but dynamically I’m at +12 thanks to the great result at the recent European Team Championships in Greece. I now have 2 more important tournaments before the end of the year (the Sport Accord in China and then the World Team Championship in Turkey), so I hope to do alright overall. In my career, my best rating has been 2540 in 2006 and I reached 3rd woman in the world also in 2006. As for titles, I got the title of Grandmaster (men) in 2004 and the highest women’s title of 12th women’s world chess champion in 2008, defeating Hou Yifan in the final of the World Championship. I am also the current women’s world Chess960 champion.

As they say, “the rest is history…”.
