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.

 

Below you can see the most recent chess ratings, for both men and women. Note that you can click the names of some players and see my games against them. I am most proud that I was able to beat the top 3 men in the world, Magnus Carlsen, Vishy Anand and Levon Aronian. I’ve also beaten Judit Polgar at the 2009 World Blitz Chess Championship. You can watch my games on my YouTube channel “chessqueen“, which has more than 3,000 subscribers. I will add to the channel new games as I play with more top players.

  11. Aditya Mookerjee says:

    I would be interested in how Ms Kosteniuk analyses Ms Koneru Humpy’s play, in other words, how does Ms Humpy play? Everyone has an opinion on Mr Anand’s play, but no one opines on Ms Humpy’s play.
