Ekaterina Kovalevskaya: "The most correct tournament is the one you win"
Ekaterina KovalevskayaAnastasia Karlovich: Ekaterina Kovalevskaya won as Black against Nino Khurtsidze in just 22 moves. What happened in your game?

Ekaterina Kovalevskaya: Already on the move 8 Nino started to think. We play with Khurtsidze for many years and I think we tried every possible opening. Today it was somewhat resembling the Tarrasch, either improved or downgraded, I am not sure. Her 8.g3 was a nice surprise for me, as Black's problems after it are pretty much over. I get an extra tempo, and the white queen gets attacked. All in all, I enjoyed seeing this move.
