French Defence 4.e5 Kosteniuk

The former Women’s World Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk played an impressive attack in this French Defence after 12.Nce2, 13.0-0 and 14.c4. White took aim at e6 and f7 to assault the Black king. Kosteniuk sacrificed her queen with the creative move 25.Nh6! I really enjoyed this win against Aleksandra Goryachkina.

My new book Blackmar-Diemer Games 8 has 182 recent BDG games (also available in paperback).
