Game OF the Week: GM Anna Muzychuk vs GM Tatiana Kosintseva

Opening: C47: Scotch Four Knights with 4.g3

Player(s): Muzychuk, Kosintseva

Three-time U.S. Champion GM Joel Benjamin brings you a new show every Friday at 15:00 Server Time. Joel is regarded by many as one of the best commentators and analysts' we have in the game today -- so if you want to get ahead of the game, get ready to tune-in!

The Women Grand Prix in Ankara turned out to be a two-horse race, with Humpy Koneru and Anna Muzychuk in the lead for nearly the all way. Muzychuk took the lead with a late win over her rival, but when she drew the last two games Koneru passed her with two concluding victories. Still, Joel is going to examine a game from early in the event, played by Anna Muzychuk. Both Koneru and more recently Hou Yifan of China have got more attention.

Muzychuk has clearly out passed all of her Eastern European adversaries, raising to a rating of over 2600, which is still a major benchmark for women players.  In this week's game, Muzychuk takes Tatiana Kosintseva into an early technical endgame. Both sides have to make important decisions, demanding crisp calculation and good intuition. We all can learn something from where they got these positions right, and where they went wrong. Let's take a look at this interesting game with our GM Joel!
