63rd Russian Women Super Final Chess Championship

While I've been engrossed in preparations and then playing in the Hales Corners Chess Challenge XVIII and following news every few minutes wondering if my country was going to ACTUALLY jump off an economic cliff by gutting the Full Faith and Credit of the United States Government, a lot of chess was being played in Russia.  One of my favorite chess femmes, GM Alexandra Kosteniuk, 12th Women's World Chess Champion, came in second in this Russian Championship -- and I hope she's not too disappointed.  She and Gunina outclassed the rest of the field against some pretty tough contenders.  Congratulations to GM Valentina Gunina and GM Alexandra Kosteniuk for their fine performances.  The information below is from The Week in Chess
