Alexandra Kosteniuk: Choosing the opening was the hardest part
IMG 5401Today the ex-World Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk did the most difficult thing in chess – won a game on demand with black pieces. From opening to ending it was a perfect example of how one should approach such key games. After the game Alexandra answered questions from the journalists at the media center.

Anastasia Karlovich: Alexandra, how hard it was for you to recover mentally after the loss and tie the score today?

Alexandra Kosteniuk: Choosing the opening was probably the hardest part. We spent a lot of time on it. It seems Black cannot win by force anywhere, I can tell you for sure now (smiles).
