Tatiana Kosintseva: “The cost of a mistake in blitz is very high” 27.04.2014Interview, NewsPress The Russian grandmaster Tatiana Kosintseva, who is currently on the 8th place, gave a press-conference after the Day Two of the World Blitz Championship. – Tatiana, how did the second day go for you? – The last match was a bit bitter, because I had a totally winning position with two extra pawns in the first game, but blundered the perpetual. This somewhat knocked me down, I played poorly in the second game and rightfully lost it. – Did it affect your mood? – Of course, after I miss such opportunities, it leaves an unpleasant feeling, especially when you lose a winning position on time. But of course this is blitz, we are all short on time, and the cost of a mistake is very high. It’s a struggle, it’s blitz. – Does your sister help you during the tournament? – Nadya is very busy right now – she gave birth to a girl recently. But of course we keep it touch, she follows my progress here and supports me greatly. – What is your mood before the concluding day of the championship? – I will keep fighting, just as I did before, and let’s see what happens.
